PhD Research — Caroline Patricio Vignardi

MSc, Biological Oceanography, University of São Paulo, Oceanographic Institute, São Paulo, Brazil; B.Sc. Biological Sciences with an emphasis in Marine Biology, Santa Cecilia University, Santos, Brazil.

Considering the numerous benefits and, consequently, the rapid advancement of nanotechnology and nanomaterials being incorporated into consumer, industrial, and medical products, it is important to understand the impact that these products may have on human and environmental health. The main focus is to address questions about the impacts of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) on key ecological processes that help to control the abundance and distribution of organisms in estuary and marine ecosystems.
