Wardah Azhar, PhD
Wardah Azhar is an accomplished environmental remediation expert, advancing the study of contaminated sediments through cutting-edge research. Since joining CDM Smith, Wardah has lent considerable engineering talents to some of the company’s most high-profile projects. These include work at EPA Superfund sites like the Kalamazoo River (MI), Portland Harbor (OR), Newtown Creek (NY), and the Passaic River (NJ). A frequent presence at international forums like the Battelle Conference on Contaminated Sediments, Wardah has quickly become an integral part of the CDM Smith corps of thought-leaders.
Why CDM Smith? I joined CDM Smith right after completing my doctorate degree. As someone working on PhD research focused on sediments, I was looking to find a company that had a good portfolio of sediments projects.
What are your 3 non-work passions? Motorcycles, cycling, and being in the mountains.
Wardah has been selected to present research on sorption capacity of in situ activated carbon amendments in New Orleans at the world's premier sediment remediation event.
