Interview With A is a video series where we talk with real SUNY students and faculty on their experience, achievements, and research at any of SUNY’s 64 campuses in New York State.
We chat here with SUNY Fredonia‘s Dr. Sherri Mason, Associate Professor of Chemistry, who has conducted extensive and ongoing research into pollution in the Great Lakes. In collaboration with the 5 Gyres Institute, SUNY Fredonia, with Dr. Mason, conducted the first-ever analysis of plastics pollution in the bodies of water. The team found alarmingly high plastic particles within the Great Lakes and Dr. Mason addresses why that matters in this IWA.
