Marina Koether, Ph.D.

Welcome to Dr. Koether's Website at Kennesaw State University.

My area of research is on all aspects of microplastics. This area utilizes my knowledge in Environmental, Analytical and Pharmaceutical Chemistry. 

Along with my colleagues, we have received the highly competitive I3 Grant from KSU.  This gives us funds to research on the Best Practices to Analyze and Characterize Microplastics in Drinking Water Treatment Plants.  We are interested in sorption/desorption of metals and pharmaceuticals on microplastics. We are looking for graduate students and many undergraduate students to work on this project.

I have been the General Chemistry Coordinator since August 2019 and this will end December 2021.

I am currently senior personnel on an NSF grant with Dr. S. Greipsson from the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Organismal Biology.
