Visiting faculty members have now returned to Pakistan, while one faculty members remains at both CSU and the U to continue research. Our first round of visitors participated in an ambitious round of activities including multiple classes, research, a weekly seminar, and social activities. They took trips out to Antelope Island and down to Moab, as well as going on tours of local water treatment facilities.
At the end of the water seminar, each faculty member was given the opportunity to present their research topics:
- Professor Rasool Bux Mahar – Development of Molecular Tools for Isolation & Identification of Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria in Urban
- Professor Babar M. Munir – Toward Improved Management of Irrigation Return Flows in the Indus River Basin: Monitoring and Modeling to Enhance Water Quality, Boost Productivity, and Conserve Water
