Co-PI Schauer Receives NSF Grant

Co-PI Professor Caroline Schauer of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering and PI Professor Mira Olson of the Department of Civil, Architectural, and Environmental Engineering, along with collaborators at Johns Hopkins University, have received a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for their project  "Investigation of Chemotaxis in Porous Media: Visualization Experiments and Modeling." 

This project develops a labeled micromodel for simultaneous visualization of bacterial and chemical distributions in heterogeneous media and applies Lattice-Boltzmann modeling techniques to quantify bacterial chemotaxis in soil. The Drexel portion of the two-year project budget is $255,000.
