Many congratulations to Alicia Mateos-Cárdenas on the publication of her thesis. It is looking magnificent!

The thesis titled “Impact, Fate and Trophic Transfer of Microplastics in the Freshwater Environment” is the culmination of more than three years of intense work. The research has produced three published journal articles (so far) and much media interest.

In these strange times, there was an online viva on a typical Irish rainy day in July, and unfortunately conferrings are to take place online, too. But the thesis is printed and looking beautiful on this sunny autumn day! Today there was a (socially distanced) photo session with supervisor Prof. Marcel Jansen to celebrate…

We wish Alicia much success in the next chapter of her career.
