#UAlberta18 in Stories & Photos

Chelsea Benally had a good job at a U.S. national lab, but she never felt it was the right fit. When she found out about the U of A's research into oilsands remediation, it revived her lifelong aspiration to use science to benefit the environment. Now, as the first Indigenous woman to graduate with a PhD in engineering from the U of A, she wants to continue her research in reclaiming tailings pond water while helping to increase First Nations participation in engineering.
