Our Team

To investigate Plumbing Safety, we have organized a skilled team of microbiologists, risk assessors, data scientists, civil, environmental, and ecological engineers, ecologists, and political scientists. University team members are from Purdue University (West Lafayette, IN), Michigan State University (East Lansing, MI), San Jose State University (San Jose, CA), Tulane University (New Orleans, LA), Manhattan College (New York City, NY), and University of Memphis (Memphis, TN). Our research partners represent nonprofit organizations, trade industry associations, water companies, and health agencies. These organizations contribute to different projects as well as help us identify critical technology and scientific needs that should be addressed.
