Multidisciplinary Investigation of Electronic Life Cycles and Waste. I am part of an interdisciplinary project led by Dr. Kory Cooper that focuses on e-waste. Hundreds of millions of electronic devices (computers, cell phones, LCD televisions, etc.) have been produced globally in the last few years and many of these devices contain materials known to have serious negative impacts on human health. When an electronic device comes to the end of its use-life, or is replaced with a newer model, it is disposed of in a landfill, stored in the home (closet-fill), refurbished for resale and reuse, or dismantled for the purpose of recycling metal components. As the amount of e-waste continues to grow at an alarming rate it is clear that the hazardous effects of e-waste will be with us for a very long time to come.
