According to an article in Forbes, Aclarity, a company birthed from the Ph.D. research of Julie Bliss Mullen from the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department, has surpassed $1 million from an initial venture capital pre-seed round. The funds will be invested into further research and development for Aclarity's water-purifying device, which went on sale commercially earlier this year, made in the town of Springfield. Forbes had previously named Mullen in the magazine’s all-star listing of “30 Under 30 for Science” for 2018.
