Trace Metal Cycling in Urban Agricultural Soils


Claudia’s project will investigate trace metal cycling in urban agricultural soils to ensure that crops grown in urban settings are safe for consumption while protecting groundwater resources. At UC Riverside, Claudia hopes to use this project to build trust and reliability in locally grown food, bringing food security to the campus and community.
