Beatriz Gomez is currently a Ph.D. student in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering of the University of Cantabria, under the supervision of Prof. Ane Urtiaga and Dr. Nazely Diban. She is Chemical Engineer from the University of Cantabria and Master in Chemical Engineering (Interuniversity program by University of Cantabria/Basque Country University). Her research activity is focused on developing sustainable technologies for the abatement of perfluoro- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) in polluted water. The chemical structure of PFASs leads to high persistence, potential to bio-accumulate, and resistance to conventional wastewater treatment operations.
