Sandra Liliana Arias Suarez
Sandra got her BS at the University of Antioquia, Colombia. She joined the RSSEL Laboratory in 2012 at Purdue University, where she got a position as research assistant. There, she conducted toxicological research on nanoparticles and emergent platforms for vascular applications. Currently, she is a PhD student at UIUC and her research is focused on exploring the physiochemical and mechanical properties of biointerfaces obtained by plasmas for tissue engineering applications.
