My PhD

During my PhD (2017-2020) I investigated the impacts (ecotoxicology), fate and trophic transfer of microplastics in the freshwater environment.

Current Projects

My current work on microplastic research is focused on the presence of microplastics and their associated chemicals in the deep sea. My other current projects focus on bioplastic degradation and citizen science initiatives.

In the media

I like leaving the lab sometimes to talk about science. I enjoy speaking about plastic pollution and other environmental issues, feminism and mental health. También comunico en Castellano cuando puedo!
