Mary Kosuth will talk about microplastic contamination in water in conjunction with Mayumi Amada’s exhibition Water Flows, Life Blooms. Mary is a research assistant and PhD student at the University of Minnesota’s School of Public Health, Division of Environmental Health Sciences. She is also an adjunct faculty member at Dunwoody College of Technology where she has been teaching environmental science classes for the past 18 years. Her work in microplastic research began in 2016 while involved in a study examining contamination in three consumer products (beer, table salt, and global tap water). She is presently focusing her attention on method improvements, a remediation project for treating wastewater, as well as a project that involves sampling in remote areas of the Canadian high arctic.
