Ida Sandra Quarm

I am currently a second year student in Kwame Nkrumah University of Science Technology reading BSc. Chemistry. As an upcoming researcher, my top goal is to give back to the society. Help in solving societal problems through research and findings and I believe my participation in this project would set me in the race. Taking part in SHEATHE – Xenobiotic Substances And Heavy Metals In The Environment- A Threat To Health, Ecosystems And The Development In Ghana would help discover the displacement of heavy metals and  waste electrical and electronic equipment in the environment.
