Nicholas Rogers


Doctoral Student

 Nick is a 4th year Ph.D. candidate in Dr. Mark Wiesner's lab at Duke. His dissertation research focuses 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.
