Thesis Description

Esteban Gillio Meina's graduate studies focuses on the contstruction of models to better understand how environmental modifying factors representative of oil sand process-water alter the toxicity of vanadium to model-aquatic organisms. Since it is not fully understood yet, Esteban is interested in elucidating the mechanism of action of vanadium to better understand its toxicity.
