She currently serves as co-principal investigator on a research project for the Department of Defense’s Strategic Environmental R&D program (SERDP), for which she developed an R code to predict unknown PFAS molecular formulas. Her expertise extends to chlorinated solvents, wastewater treatment systems, state and federal drinking water regulations and data analysis. She is passionate about combating environmental issues and leading innovative projects to protect public health from contaminants.
Why CDM Smith? My first encounter with CDM Smith was through a PFAS expert. Being in academia for more than 13 years I was amazed to know how scientific and research-based the people that work at CDM Smith are.
