Associate Professor; Adjunct Associate Professor, Chemistry; Director, Raff Laboratory
With our Environmental Chemistry, Toxicology, and Risk Assessment concentration you’ll learn to examine the fate and transport of chemicals in the environment, including the health hazards and social impacts associated with chemical pollution. You’ll study the chemical, physical, and biological reactions of pollutants in the soil, water, and atmospheric systems. You’ll also learn the effects of toxins in the environment and cutting-edge methods of regulating them. You’ll add training in environmental management and policy to ensure you can communicate your science to the public and policymakers. Finally, you’ll learn how to analyze sensitivity and exposure information to quantify risks associated with environmental contaminants.
O’Neill is a global leader in environmental chemistry, toxicology, and risk assessment education, research and public service. As a graduate, you will be well prepared for a number of roles including environmental consultant, scientist, or data or project manager. You will be poised for professional success in the private, nonprofit, or public sector, at national and international levels, or in the fast-growing and often innovative environment of state and municipal organizations.
