Dr. Laura Brentner is a human as well as a lecturer of environmental science at the University of Loyola. She’s passionate about developing sustainable environmental solutions using bio-based technologies, and her research mainly focuses on restoring and maintaining natural environmental systems and meeting the needs of an advancing global society through the utilization of renewable resources.
In our conversation, we discuss environmental science, phytoremediation (not to be confused with bioremediation), how humans may actually be the best species, why cockroaches are our grandparents, and the movie Alien (SPOILER ALERT). Thanks for helping out an enchanted mineral, Laura.
And a big thank-you to these people:
