Juliana Atmadja, PhD - Louis Berger, Inc.
Dr. Atmadja is a subject matter expert in forensic chemical data analysis for Louis Berger, U.S. For over 17 years, she has been leading and supporting technical efforts for various phases of large contaminated sediments projects on behalf of the US Army Corps of Engineers and US Environmental Protection Agency in the home territory of the Hudson Delaware Chapter. These include the Lower Passaic River Restoration Project, the Hudson River PCBs Superfund Site, and the Newark Bay Superfund Site. She has B.S. and M.S. degrees in Ocean Engineering and a Sc.D. in Civil Engineering with a focus on hydrogeology. Her specialized expertise includes geochemical data analysis, pollutant source fingerprinting, fate and transport modeling in groundwater and surface water, statistical and geostatistical analyses, and GIS evaluation of environmental data. Her well-rounded experience also includes hands-on participation in multi-media field investigations. She has been presenting her work at SETAC North America conferences as well as the Hudson Delaware Chapter workshop. Work she recently led on behalf of USEPA for the Upper Hudson River was presented at the Fall 2017 HDC SETAC workshop by one of her team with her support. In addition to managing projects, she also mentors and supervises a group of scientists and engineers.
Statement on suitability for the Board: My expertise in forensic chemical data analysis and fate and transport evaluations, particularly focusing on sediment contamination in important waterways within the Hudson Delaware Chapter territory, make me an ideal candidate as a Board member. I will bring my knowledge and management experience to support the HDC SETAC Board’s mission in promoting research, education, training, and development of environmental sciences. I am looking forward to serve as a Board member and assisting with the HDC’s meetings and workshops, as well as encouraging students in their research.
