STEMinine Water Resources Vlog!

Hi nerds! Are you following STEMinine yet!? Jess is a badass femme doing her PhD in Zurich in mechanical engineering! On top of her rigorous university schedule, she’s passionate about inspiring girls in STEM–which makes her a superhero to me! She is such an inspiration to me with her enthusiasm, quality content, and all around […]

when am I ever going to use this irl?

I’ve teamed with MathematicalModels.org to answer the age-old question: when am I ever going to use this irl? Even though I’m an engineer, not a mathematician, there have been a handful of times where I’ve sat down spitting out some hardcore math problems. I got excited, I geeked out… I spent way more hours than […]

don’t get burned

“I’m going to try to hit on this redheaded engineer. Think I’m playing with fire?” – a text meant for his friend but instead sent to me…said redhead… The scene: I’m standing at a drilling rig in the middle of a soybean field in North Dakota. This geologist and I had just met each other […]

inundation is the best integration

I started this project with a fitting phrase from our engineering goddess program manager: “Inundation is the best integration.” It’s apt for this project in more ways than one. There is a lot of onboarding to be done–most of which is the fun part. Running around to pump stations that were planned out by Thomas […]

ice-cream because wastewater is cool

ice ice baby After the first week doing back-to-school shenanigans, I found myself… in the ice cream aisle… on the prowl. Anyone else? Just me? Because I’m all about #adulting, I believe that five pints of ice cream is a good sub for dinner three nights in a row. Easy, fast delicious. Prove me wrong. […]

navigating the water resources professional engineering exam

Yup, that’s my seal! I’ve informed all my instagram followers to now call me Miss Andi, PE. You can now call me Miss Andi PE. Unlike 4-year-old me, I will (probably) not cover every square inch of a drumset in stamps. Sorry about that, dad! #PE #stem #stamp #official A post shared by Andromeda DuMont […]

rigging up some fun

I’m working on a geology&geochemistry post and getting ready for some hydrogeology field work! In the meantime, I wanted to show you this video. 😀 Imagine the middle aged white dude is me in about a week! #riglife By the way… the featured picture is a wellhead I took at a site in Texas. The […]

You and me. #waterwomen Y’all who know me know that I LOVE Water For People. […]

on rebuilding & gratefulness

On rebuilding & gratefulness. In Fifth Season-esque prose. A rare non-engineering post which I hope that at some point, if you need it, you may find some solace&companionship in this poetry. For lovers are always poets, not scientists, mathematicians, or engineers. Next time, back to regularly scheduled engineering posts. I won’t promise to speak the truth. Or […]

drinking recycled poopwater

You say EW, I say YUM Let’s talk about drinking poopwater! One of the biggest hurdles with implementing a recycled water system isn’t the high-end technology or the stringent regulations… Judging by your face as you read the words “drinking poopwater”, you know exactly what the hurdle is. It’s the public reaction. The super official term we […]
