My name is Angie Flores, I’m 22 years old and I’m from Panama. I study Electromechanical Engineering in the Technological University of Panama (UTP). From November 2022 until now, I have been working (as a research assistant) at the Microplastics Laboratory that is part of the Hydraulic and Hydrotechnical Research Center (CIHH) of the UTP.
I have participated in projects to collect samples of microplastics on beaches, where the main objectives were to obtain data that would show us the impact of the improper disposal of anthropogenic waste on the environment, human health, and the economy
