Bio[edit | edit source]

Hello! I'm Tessa Meyer and I am a second year undergraduate student at Michigan Technological University majoring in Environmental Engineering and minoring in Sustainable Biomaterials. I have worked for about a two years in the MOST research group. My primary research involves making bricks with recycled plastic and stamp sand composite materials to remove both of these pollutants from the environment. I am also working on a project related to distributing protein production to lessen reliance on the commercial meatpacking and farming industries and provide more sustainable options to mass produced meat. In the past, I worked on a project related to agrivoltaic applications of rabbit farming and its reduction of water and land usage when compared to cattle farming.
