Jose A Hernandez-Viezcas
Assistant Professor, Chemistry and Biochemistry

Dr. Hernandez-Viezcas’ research focuses on the environmental implications of micro and nanoparticles on terrestrial environments. From engineered advanced materials (EAMs) and their novel physical and chemical properties to the ubiquitous presence of plastics. His research uses advanced analytical techniques (e.g., Synchrotron Radiation X-Ray Absorption Spectroscopy, Single Particle-Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectroscopy, hyperspectral imaging, etc.) as well as biochemical assays to evaluate the fate, transport, and effects of EAMs, micro, and nanoplastics. Dr. Hernandez-Viezcas’ projects include the use of EAMs to increase crop production and evaluating the environmental effect of micro and nanoplastic on photosynthetic organisms.
