Cameron Wilson joined the Applied Environmental Research Team at the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) in spring of 2020. He is currently working to complete his M.S. in Civil Engineering at UAA with a project titled Per Capita Water and Fixture Use in Rural Alaska. The project involves collecting data on water use ranging from per capita consumption based on community water production to measuring how much water is used at each individual fixture within the home at any given time. Originally from North Carolina, he earned his B.S. in Biological Engineering from NC State focusing on bioprocessing and alternative fuels. After graduating and completing his research, he drove to Alaska seeking opportunity. A field engineering position lead to five years in the west Texas oilfields before he was finally able to finally come back to Alaska to continue his education and a career in research.
