Agnese Nelms Haury Fellow
Department of Soil, Water and Environmental Science

Norma Villagómez-Márquez is a second-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Soil, Water, and Environmental Science. Norma received her Master of Science in Environmental Engineering with a minor in Portuguese. Her work described the role of advanced membrane technologies like reverse osmosis, nanofiltration, and electrodialysis in water treatment, primarily desalination. As a graduate student research collaborator in the Amazon Dams Network: Advancing Integrative Research and Adaptive Management of Social-Ecological Systems Transformed by Hydroelectric Dams, funded by the National Science Foundation, Norma aims to utilize this opportunity to motivate and develop international research to address problems of dammed freshwater ecosystems. Currently, her doctoral research investigates the occurrence, fate and biodegradation of contaminants of emerging concern and the analysis of complex environmental samples using analytical techniques, particularly liquid chromatography high resolution mass spectrometry.
