Breno Sequeira is a Master's candidate in Chemical Engineering at McGill University. He is working as a researcher in the biomimetics surface engineering lab. His current research aims to manufacture nonstick and superhydrophobic food and waste plastic containers. I was blown away by the processes behind the production of these materials, and discovered my new favorite word!
