Hi everyone! My name is Alessandra Pratt but, everyone calls me Lexi. I am originally from Lake Placid, NY, but have been living in Iowa City for the past two years while I was completing my MS in Industrial Hygiene. I am now working on my PhD under Dr.Nonnenmann and am examining bioaerosols in a hospital setting. I hope to complete my doctorate in the coming years and after finding a job, obtain my CIH. One day, I would like to return to academia as a researching professor.
