Luisa Angeles, 4th-year Ph.D. student in Prof. Aga's group
My research is about looking at the global occurrence of micropollutants such as pharmaceuticals, pesticides, and other chemicals of emerging concern in the aquatic environment using liquid chromatography mass spectrometry. We collaborate with engineers and other scientists to study the development of environmental antimicrobial resistance, pharmaceutical removal efficiencies of wastewater treatment plants, and the eco-toxicological effects of these compounds on aquatic life.
I enjoy the opportunity of being able to collaborate with scientists in different fields and the diversity in the department.
Outside of lab, I like traveling, reading, and playing board games with my friends.
