B.S. in Applied Science, James Madison University
Caleb graduated from James Madison University with a B.S. in Applied Sciences. After graduation he went directly to graduate school at Old Dominion University to further pursue his studies and research. He is currently working on his M.S. in Environmental Engineering with hopes of continuing on towards his PhD.
Caleb's undergraduate research focused on algae harvesting with his efforts yielding an algae oil harvesting process that is beginning to undergo the patent process. At the graduate level he has put his culturing knowledge to use in nutrient recycling research to help reduce the cost of algae cultivation in hopes that algal biofuels may one day become economically viable. To execute this latest research he has had to utilize total suspended solids (TSS), elemental analysis, various photo-spectrometric methods, TN/TOC Analysis, and ion chromatography to monitor the experimental algae cultures and their respective nutrient levels.
