Short Bio

Astrid Avellan is studying the reactivity of contaminants in interaction with living organisms. She obtained her PhD in Environmental Geosciences at the European Research and Teaching Center for Environmental Geosciences at the University of Aix-Marseille (France) in 2015. Her research as a post-doctoral fellow in Environmental Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University (USA) contributed to highlight the importance of foliar uptake of nanoparticles in their atmosphere-soil fluxes. Her work as an associated researcher at the Universidade de Aveiro allowed her to identify the potential benefits of these foliar absorptions for a more efficient fertilization of plants. In 2022, Astrid has been granted an ERC Starting grant to push that field forward, and she is now a CNRS researcher at the Geosciences Environment Institute in Toulouse (France).
