Episode 10: Professor Jill Pasteris - October 7, 2020

This week, we sat down with Washington University Professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences, Jill Pasteris, to talk about living out her faith in her scientific field. Professor Pasteris’ research interests include Biomineralization and Raman spectroscopy of Geological Materials. She holds a PhD from Yale University. Pasteris collaborates with chemists and materials scientists to compare Raman and infrared (IR) spectra of biological apatite (a calcium phosphate mineral) and its synthetic analogs. The current goal is to understand better how the carbonate ion is incorporated into biological apatite. She also currently is collaborating with colleagues from the School of Engineering to enhance the growth of lead-bearing minerals to form protective mineral scales on the inner walls of lead pipes. The aim is to eliminate the cause of lead poisoning due to the historical use of lead service pipes to bring drinking water into homes in the US. -- The Carver Cast engages with Christian faculty in higher education and highlights the work of those faculty to bridge connections between university, church, and society.
