Dr. Suchol Savagatrup, UArizona engineering assistant professor and Army Young Investigator Award winner led a team to develop a water test that uses oil droplets, rather than a solid sensor, to immediately detect contaminants. The team’s work could lead not only to another method for detecting water contaminants, but also to better ways of removing pollutants from the environment.
