Aude Béchu


Aude is a second year PhD student who is co-supervised by Dr Ghoshal and funded by the MSSI grant. She is investigating cadmium-containing quantum dots and how these nanoparticles interact with natural waters. Her research will also involve monitoring the leaching of these nanoparticles and dissolved cadmium from displays and TVs. 

She is a French-American who got her BSc in Chemistry and Environmental Science at Union College (NY). She then moved to the University of Geneva to research the life cycle of bio-based plastics before studying at McGill.
