Experience before YEP

I’m a sanitary and environmental engineer, before this I worked on topics related to drinking water supply and quality. In my degree work, I had the opportunity to establish the occurrence of some micropollutants in the water of the river Cauca and the aqueduct network that supply drinking water to approximately 65% of the population of Cali, with this project I could identify the importance of each treatment unit in a drinking water plant.

At the beginning of my professional career, I was working in the design department of two companies, where I had the opportunity to design systems for supplying drinking water and treating and removing wastewater.
