Fanny Okaikue-Woodi

Fanny is a PhD student in the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Fanny completed her A.S (2013) in Mathematics at Minneapolis College, then her B.S (2015) and M.Eng (2016) in Environmental Engineering at Cornell University. She is interested in the fate and transport of contaminants in environmental matrices and in developing remediation techniques for these contaminants. For her M.Eng study, Fanny investigated the mechanisms governing the trapping of fluoroquinolone antibiotics in montmorillonite clay. Currently, her research focuses on developing new media for stormwater treatment. Fanny hopes to develop effective materials and techniques to be used in the remediation of a broad spectrum of contaminants. In her free time, Fanny enjoys hiking, discovering new places, discovering and listening to new podcasts and watching stand-up comedy.
