Integration of Collegiate Sports Analytics: Update 3

Moving further and further towards the end of the research part of my project, it seems that I’ve hit a literary wall. While there are hundreds of articles and publications on how sports analytics have worked their way into professional leagues, it appears that I have exhausted those options regarding strictly NCAA sports. With that […]

Update 4: The Dark Side of Photochemistry

Photochem Test Tubes

This week I continued my photochemistry experiments from last week, but this time I used different materials for the sacrificial donor. Right now, I am experimenting with varying┬áconcentrations of a substance found in natural waters. Unfortunately, gas chromatography analysis showed little to no hydrogen production. Why is this the case? Natural water samples have been […]

Update 3: Fun with Photochem!

As I wrote about in an earlier post, the focus of my summer research is to determine a natural source of hydrated electrons that will generate hydrogen in a photocatalytic system. Thus, I will be performing many photochemistry experiments. This week I started to learn this procedure and ran a couple of experiments with materials […]
