Pierre

Pierre is part of our Center of Water Excellence located in Chelmsford, Mass. Each September, he and his peers participate in the Groundwork Lawrence Spicket River Cleanup. This event brings together local youth, businesses and community leaders to maintain the local river and surrounding parks and river walk and create a safe, clean destination for everyone to enjoy.

Pierre took the above photo of students observing a pH test of the local river water. They also had the opportunity to learn about turbidity, dissolved oxygen and conductivity during this event through water testing demonstrations.

nancy

As a leader within her local Rotary Club, Nancy has supported the organization’s Clean Water initiatives. Rotary members travel to villages that do not have clean water for all and install Hydraid biosand water filters, educate the community on sanitation and good hygiene practices. They also follow-up by inspecting and maintaining the filters year-after-year, and building relationships with the families they help.

Nancy has had the opportunity travel to Honduras twice to support the Clean Water project, once to install filters and another time to inspect and repair them. In the picture above she is rinsing sand to create one of three filtration layers in a biosand water filter.

Haiti-water-supply

Sustaining engineer and father to two nurses whom volunteered to work in Haiti, Bob traveled to the island to visit his daughters. His visit turned into a happenstance when he met the director of Hospital Albert Schweitzer, located in Deschapelles, Haiti. Bob implemented the donation of equipment to help monitor the hospital’s water supply as well as local water supplies to prevent cholera and other waterborne illnesses. These donations, which range from, pH, conductivity, meters and electrodes, colorimeters, and solutions to monitor water supplies, ensure that the water supply is healthy (pictured at left).

Bob’s leadership enlisted the help of many departments within Thermo Fisher Scientific and amongst multiple locations. Since the donation, Hospital Albert Schweitzer has worked with the CDC and a geologist from the United States to use Thermo Fisher Scientific’s equipment to monitor water for pH, salinity, turbidity, chlorine, ammonia, nitrogen, phosphorus, aluminum, bromine, copper and sulfate. Both missions of Hospital Albert Schweitzer and Thermo Fisher Scientific have been realized as the collaboration works to improve the lives of individuals in both health and safety.

If you have questions for Chris about your future career in the water industry,  email him here.

Solving the world’s water problems is a complex issue that is gaining is of growing concern to modern societies. Water changes throughout the seasons and throughout the world, and human need for water of all kinds requires great scientific minds to ensure quality water is available as it’s needed.

This is one of Chris’s concerns and that’s why he is dedicated to developing the talent of water experts. He has experience working in research in development to create products that address many aspects of water: from creating high-purity water, to solving problems in potable water, from large-industrial scale applications to using water in downstream steps in a lab to public consumption.

While part of the Water Quality Association, Chris worked with a group of water’s brightest minds to a learning module that pushes industry members of all experience levels outside of their comfort zone to think about how they can innovate in industrial and high-purity applications. Additionally Chris has worked with the New England Water Innovation Network and the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering to help young talent find their spot in the market, so that they can drive innovation in the industry.
