Carolina Caro

Carolina Caro Cano is a 3rd year Ph.D. student in the Environmental Sciences program at Rutgers University - Newark. She is interested in geophysical techniques that can be used to investigate the first 100 meters of the Earth's surface. Currently, she is working on understanding and improving the applications of a novel geophysical method called nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) for water content measurements on samples with high magnetic susceptibility. Carolina is also passionate about introducing and educating the next generation about the importance of geosciences. She has done this by participating as a mentor for the GNOMES program and the SLOAN-STAR program at Rutgers University. In one of her most recent research projects, Carolina joined the IRES-Peru project where she applied geophysical techniques to help a remote community in the Andes manage and quantify their water resources. In the future, she hopes to work as a research scientist to find out how geophysical techniques can be applied as a potential tool to solve environmental contaminant problems.
