Watch the video to learn more about Prof. Chandran's research.

In New York City alone, some 1.2 billion gallons of wastewater is produced every single day. This wastewater somehow all needs to be treated daily, and this serves as just one important example of the many local and global challenges that face today’s earth and environmental engineers, and future ones. Associate Professor Kartik Chandran, whose research is in sustainable ways to address water, sanitation, and human health, presents a clear and inspiring overview on the potential for engineers to effect change and work toward a greener Earth and environment. Students who major in earth and environmental engineering at the School learn firsthand how to tackle an ever-increasing array of environmental problems worldwide while contributing to Columbia’s own efforts in staying green and promoting environmental sustainability on its campus.
