Interdisciplinary Science Planetary Health Talk: Elias Dueker, Assistant Professor, Biology and Environmental Urban Studies, Bard College
Citizen scientists have discovered that in rural and urban communities, microbes in adjacent waterways can also be found in the air. Earlier community efforts led to the establishment of the Clean Water Act and today these communities concerned have expanded to air quality as microbial connections between water and air are not currently considered in regulatory approaches. By conducting microbiological research with concerned communities, Dr. Dueker's research crosses scientific boundaries between air and water quality, pushing toward holistic management approaches in the urban and rural environment.
