Carmen Hannah Carrillo
I am an undergraduate researcher majoring in Materials Science & Engineering at UW-Madison. I am interested in studying plastics and their degradation in the environment. I use state-of-the-art materials characterization techniques to understand the impact of the environmental microbiome on plastics. I am co-advised by the Anantharaman research group, which focuses on understanding the role of microbiomes in the environment, human health, and disease.
I am a freshman majoring in mechanical engineering. I currently study ways of improving the fracture toughness of woven carbon composites. I’m specifically interested in the applications of woven composites in aerospace engineering. In my free time I enjoy playing the piano, playing soccer, and skiing.
