Ph.D. candidate researches effects of fracking

A topic of significant discussion in society and politics over the past few years is hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking. This is the practice of using highly pressurized water for the purpose of fracturing sub-surface rocks to get easier access to the fluids within the rock at incredibly fast rates.
