Norma is a Ph.D. student in Soil, Water, and Environmental Science at the University of Arizona. She has a background in Chemical and Environmental Engineering investigating the role of advanced membrane technologies like reverse osmosis (RO), nanofiltration (NF) and electrodialysis (ED) in water treatment, primarily desalination. Norma is the recipient of a 2018 Carson Haury Scholars Program Fellowship, given to excellent and diverse graduate students who are studying renewable energy, environment, and social justice. She was selected as a 2018 Singapore UNLEASH Innovation Lab Talent by the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Program to participate in the development of solutions for SDG # 6 Clean Water and Sanitation.
