“As a scientist at Infuser I have been given the opportunity to continue working on the technological aspects of environmental chemistry”
I am a chemist with a specialization in green and sustainable chemistry. I started my education studying mathematics, with elective courses in chemistry, specifically quantum and environmental chemistry. During these courses I discovered my fascination for chemistry and after finishing my Bachelor’s in mathematics I chose to change paths, opting for a Master’s in environmental chemistry.
In my Master thesis, I got ‘hands on experience’ working with air pollution measurements, building low-cost portable sensors, which were used to measure both gaseous and particulate pollution at local levels in populated areas.
As a scientist at Infuser I have been given the opportunity to continue working on the technological aspects of environmental chemistry. I am now a part of a skilled team working on new solutions to reduce air pollution. On a daily basis, this means that I conduct experiments looking at different ways to reduce air pollution, where I use computer programming to analyze the data. These results are then summarized into reports, allowing the experimental results to be disseminated.
