Hailing from Washington, DC, Arthur Moses is a second year PhD student pursuing a degree in Soil and Water Sciences. At the University of Arizona, he is working under a citizen science project called Project Harvest. There, he works on testing water and soil samples for the presence of microbes, such as fecal coliforms. Arthur is interested in examining the prevalence of harmful bacteria in community harvested water and how those organisms will ultimately impact peoples’ health through soil and plants. Prior to arriving in Tucson, Arthur spent time in the United States Marine Corps and completed his undergraduate work at the University of Maryland-College Park (UMD). He earned a B.S in Geographical Sciences, emphasizing on sustainability and development. At UMD, he spent time mapping and improving the roads and bike share lanes around campus, helping to facilitate a more eco-friendly environment.
