Dr. Tracy Fanara’s goal is to make science fun and accessible for everyone, and to spread the word that science is cool. She’s an engineer, scientist, professor, storm chaser, paranormal investigator and all-around badass. We’ll be talking all things science with “Dr. Tre.”
Dr. Tracy Fanara works to extend humanity’s existence on Earth through innovative collaborative solutions to world health threats, all while building a sustainable future for generations to come. Tracy aims to make science a part of every citizen’s toolset. She hopes to inspire positive change and growth through education while having fun making the world a better place. She is a University of Florida graduate with a BS, ME, and PhD in Environmental Engineering (Go Gators), focusing on sustainable design, water treatment and science communication.
