Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers visited Marcia Silva’s lab at the UWM Water Technology Accelerator on April 25. Silva is an adjunct assistant professor of both electrical engineering & computer science and industrial & manufacturing engineering.
Four technologies were presented to the governor by UWM students—including two from the College of Engineering & Applied Science. Sachin Davis (master’s student, electrical engineering) presented his work on a novel non-invasive device for detection of thin biofilms inside of pipes; Andrew Thompson, (undergraduate, computer science), presented his work on an optical sensor for detection of particles in water.
“I am so proud of all my talented students!” says Silva.
