    John Scully and his students spend a lot of time thinking about what comes out of people’s kitchen faucets. Scully – who chairs the Materials Science and Engineering Department at UVA and co-directs, with Professor Robert Kelly, UVA’s Center for Electrochemical Science and Engineering – spent the summer working with undergraduate and graduate students exploring the water problems of Flint, Michigan, in an effort to get some scientific answers.
