Dr. Erica Pensini received her Bachelor’s and MASC at the Politecnico di Milano (Italy). She worked in the environmental consulting industry (AECOM and MWH Stantec, Milan) before completing her PhD in Environmental Engineering from the University of Toronto in 2012. Here, she investigated the remediation of chlorinated compounds and heavy metals using nano-scale zero-valent iron. Between 2012 and 2014, she held a position as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Alberta, where she mainly investigated the mechanisms of emulsion stabilization and destabilization in the context of bitumen recovery. She then worked as a research associate for SANJEL in Calgary (developing fracking fluids) and as a scientist for SABIC in the Netherlands (investigating methods to mitigate fouling in a steam cracker). Dr. Pensini joined the School of Engineering at the University of Guelph in 2017, where she is currently an associate professor. The Pensini lab mainly focuses on water treatment, soil remediation, and developing bio-based materials as plastic substitutes.
