In this episode of Geography now, geologist Alice Fugagnoli discusses her PhD research on the impact of microplastics on the geological cycle, and how the impact of COVID-19 will be seen by future generations.
Alice Fugagnoli is a first year PhD student at the University of Leicester, researching the behaviour of plastics within the geological cycle using cutting edge analytical techniques and experimental design. Alice has a background in environmental studies, and has focused on the anthropogenic impacts on environments throughout her acadmic career.
In this podcast episode, Alice talks about how COVID-19 has shaped her research, the impact the pandemic may have on the geological cycle, and explains what 'technofossils' are.
Geography now is a new podcast series from the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG). In this series, we’ll be talking to geographers about the work that they’re doing, topics they’re passionate about, and opinions they have about the world around us.
At a time when it is impossible to host speakers at the Society, we are committed to creating content that can be accessed online.
