Ph.D. Student, Civil & Environmental EngineeringChia-Chen Wu

Degrees
M.S.E. Environmental Engineering, National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan
B.S. Public Health, National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan

Research Project
Chia-Chen’s work deals with bacterial colonization of point-of-use drinking water filters. Her project is to identify how the opportunistic pathogens from tap water would be removed by or enriched in PoU filters, and to assess the associated risk due to opportunistic pathogens and antibiotic resistance.
Advisors: Terese Olson and Nancy G. Love

Other Interests
Playing saxophone, hiking, jogging
