My interests are related to nanoparticles and their functionalization for improvements of our lives. Also, I want to participate and collaborate with studies that can help with the production of novel data that can lead to new technologies for protecting our home, the Earth. This summer internship at CEINT will give me the experience in my area of interest, nanotechnology and nanomaterial sciences with real and exciting outside lab experiences. This program is really important to me because it will teach me new scientific skills and knowledge in nanoscience and it relationship or effects in the environment.
