Speaker Bio: Megan Lott is a 3rd-year Ph.D. Student in Environmental Health Science and is training under the advisement of Dr. Erin Lipp. Megan received both her Bachelor of Science in Public Health and Master of Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Currently, she is investigating the implementation of a wastewater-based surveillance strategy to monitor trends in COVID-19 in Athens, Georgia. By monitoring influent wastewater samples for the SARS-CoV-2 virus, her research aims to provide early warnings of disease outbreaks at the building and neighborhood level. Furthermore, her innovative approach to monitoring underscores the interconnectedness between water infrastructure, the environment, and public health.
