I am Elvia Rufo, ESR14 in the PRORISK project. As part of my secondments I had the opportunity to undertake a research stay at the University of Waterloo (Ontario, Canada) last fall. From October to February I worked with Dr. Roy Brouwer and the Water Economics Research Group (WERG) in the Water Institute.
During my four-month stay, one of my main objectives was to carry out the methodology and data processing of my second article, with the support of Dr. Roy Brouwer. We collaborated closely on research regarding people's values and perceptions of the adverse effects of skin sensitizing chemicals on human health. In this time, I also had the opportunity to engage in insightful discussions and share my research with other researchers from different disciplines who were part of the WERG.
