Co-PIs Geyer and Kuczenski have substantial experience in performing material flow analyses of waste products, including metals, polymers, and waste oil. Co-PI Kuczenski will perform the major work of the project, and Co-PI Geyer will support the work with domain expertise in marine debris. Additional research, including literature review, data processing, and analysis, will be performed by highly motivated students enrolled in the Bren School MESM program as paid summer interns or part-time research assistants during the school year, jointly supervised by both Co-PIs.
