Environmental Sciences

Sandra is a Ph.D student in Environmental Sciences and Engineering. Her research focuses on the development of new nanotechnology-based products to improve the sustainability of agri-food production. She will characterize the biogeochemical transformations of nanoparticles, its reactivity and interactions with soils and plants. Working at Carnegie Mellon University will allow her not only to work with experienced scientists but also to perform specific tests and analysis using specialized equipment.
