Informal / multi-age

Though you can't see them, you probably touch, wear, and even eat nanoparticles every day. Because of the many ways we use nanoparticles, they enter the environment as a new type of contaminant. In this video, I explain how these nanoparticles might be harming important (and good) bacteria in the environment. The goal of my research is to learn more about the risks of nanomaterials to the environment so we can make better decisions about using them.
