Kelly Hall Lab 230
This lab is shared with Prof. Peter Vikesland and Prof. Linsey Marr from the Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering. It is a unique space that promotes interdisciplinary collaborations by bringing together students and postdocs who are researching environmental nanoscience and technology from different perspectives.
