CEE Graduate Student Presents at Unisense Workshop in Denmark

CEE environmental engineering graduate student Yongchao Xie  presented at a Unisense workshop in Aarhus, Denmark, March 14-16. Unisense is a world leading manufacturer of microsensors and instrumentation for microscale measurements in the medical and environmental fields. Xie presented his experience designing a bioreactor that could monitor denitrifying microorganism activity by measuring nitrogen oxide with Unisense microsensor/electrodes.

The workshop covered  the following areas: 1) Introduction and theory behind microsensor and application; 2) Scientific presentations by workshop participants and guest speakers; 3) Tour of facility and production; 4) Demonstration of Unisense  sensors, instruments and software; and 5) Hands-on training and experimental work.

“This workshop gave me a better theoretical understanding about using electrochemical methods to explore microbial/environmental problems,” he said. “Another precise system will be built up in Dr.Loeffler’s lab for deeper exploration of nitrogen oxide turnover in the environmental system.”

The flagship campus of the University of Tennessee System and partner in the Tennessee Transfer Pathway.
