Suomi, who became known as the “Father of Satellite Meteorology.”

If you had to name something as ubiquitous as the air we breathe in, it would be plastic. From cheap soda bottles to the shopping baskets in the market, plastic is essential to our lives. However, it’s also devastating for being non-renewable in large quantities. One of the researchers trying to solve that problem is Ali Hussain Motagamwala, a graduate student working under James Dumesic, a professor of chemical and biological engineering, with funding provided by the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center.
