This semester, the Wiatrowski lab welcomed a new member, Lina Sanchez. Lina is a junior, and a biology major. Here is a picture of me and Lina attempting to perform the Volta experiment in Crystal Pond, during microbiology class in the Fall of 2010. In this experiment, we capture methane from the sediments below in a funnel and then light it on fire. It didn’t work this time; better luck next year!
