Eric Caroca ESR1

My project:

“Characterization of the labile metal fraction in complex matrices containing microbes”


I am Eric Caroca, from Chile. I am a Chemical Engineer with an MSc in Chemical Engineering from Federico Santa María Technical University. My area of interest is environment, focused on treatment and revaluation of solid and liquid wastes. My professional career has allowed me to know different industrial sectors, to work in research in nanotechnology and teaching, with courses in statistics and process engineering, I consider it important to have a holistic vision of professional work and be open to different alternatives. This PhD program is an excellent occasion to explore new technologies and create opportunities to promote sustainable development. I enjoy theatrical activities in my free time, in recent years focused on improvisational theater.
