Nick's dissertation research focused on using methods from nanoscience to characterize bacterial and yeast extracellular vesicle transport and fate in soil. Previously, he studied under Dr. Lee Blaney at UMBC to use fluorescent spectroscopy to detect leaking wastewater in Greater Baltimore area surface waters.
My project seeks to understand the fate and transport tendencies of extracellular vesicles derived from S. cerevisiae in agricultural systems.
