Stephanie Laughton is a graduate student from North Carolina in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. Her research in environmental applications of nanomaterials in agricultures continues her interest in the "nano" field from her previous degree in Civil & Environmental Engineering (B.S.) from Duke University where she first encountered CEINT. When not doing research or working with student organizations at CMU, Stephanie can be found on a dance floor, in a kitchen, or behind a good book.
Applications of Nanomaterials in Agriculture
Efficient Use of Applied Nutrient
Stephanie's current research aims to utilize the unique conditions of the rhizosphere, compared to bulk soil, to develop more efficient methods of delivering nutrients to agricultural crops. Stephanie also assists in CMU's work at the CEINT Mesocosm facility to monitor the effects of nanomaterial exposures in simulated natural environments.
