Institution: Duke University


I am a PhD candidate in Dr. Mark Wiesner's Lab in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Duke University. I am interested in developing alternative methods to predict the behavior of natural and engineered nanomaterials in complex systems. My research focuses on nanomaterial heteroggregation with soil colloids and interactions between plants and nanomaterials.

Research Interests

Nanomaterial transport in soils, plant uptake, transmission electron microscopy, functional assays
