Paty NAKHLE started her PhD within M-TROPICS on pathogen bacteria transport and fate in tropical catchments

Paty Nakhle is a former student from both the Lebanese University and the Agronomy Engineering School of Toulouse (ENSAT), with a specialization in environmental science. She also hold a joint ENSAT/Paul Sabatier University master degree Ecosystèmes et Anthropisation and performed her 6-month internship at GET laboratory, where she experimentally modelled the degradation of peat and the emissions of CO2 and CH4 from lakes in permafrost areas under climate change. Now she just started her PhD at GET, within the M-TROPICS critical zone observatory, with the aim of characterizing pathogen bacteria transport and fate in tropical catchments. Welcome Paty !
