Joseph Flanagin

Mr. Flanagin received his formal education from the University of Texas at Arlington where he conducted research on sexual reproduction of golden algae, respiration of apodan amphibians (caecilians), pulmonary vascular morphometry in climbing snakes, and fluid balance and erythrocyte metabolism in toads.  Since graduation, he has held positions in academia, government, and industry conducting research on quantification of food and water microbial contamination, pollution reduction and prevention in public schools, and public waterway (river) water quality monitoring.  Current interests include adapting small-scale and microscale chemistry techniques to environmental contaminant testing, and feasibility of distributed energy production to provide potable water in developing countries.
