Ingrid was elected in recognition of “her sustained research contributions to understanding groundwater flow and contaminant transport in karst aquifers with its implications for the protection and remediation of drinking-water resources.” Ingrid is recognized as a leader of interdisciplinary research that explores human-health outcomes from exposure to contaminated groundwater.

In addition to leading PROTECT’s Project 3, Ingrid is a Professor in Environmental and Water Resources Engineering at the University of Puerto Rico – Mayagüez (UPRM), as well as a Special Advisor to the UPRM Chancellor for Research, Innovation, and Creative Endeavors.
