Linda Logan, Ph.D.
I have made my career in environmental science with over 30 years of research and consulting serving clients in the public and private sectors throughout the United States and internationally (Australia, Hong Kong). My areas of expertise are in water and sediment quality, ecological and human health risk assessment, stormwater permitting, and water quality compliance. I have also led contaminant fate studies in support of a FIFRA data call-in, including evaluations of contaminant bioavailability, bioaccumulation, and persistence in support of water quality and toxicity studies. I obtained my Ph.D. from the University of Glasgow, Scotland, in the biogeochemistry and health effects of arsenic. I have been fortunate to work under the mentorship of great scientists, John Farmer in Glasgow, Steve Klaine at the University of Memphis, and Rick Cardwell at Parametrix, in Seattle. I have been a member of SETAC for over 20 years since joining the Ozark Prairie Chapter while in Memphis, and was active in the Pacific Northwest Chapter. I recently joined the Hudson Delaware Chapter after moving to the Philadelphia area and joining Anchor QEA, where my focus is now on CERCLA sites and risk assessment. I value HD-SETAC for promoting dialogue among academics, regulators, and the regulated community. I would like to serve on the Board to continue that mission, and inspired especially by Steve Klaine, to reciprocate the support I received from mentors, by using my experience and contacts to encourage students in their research and promote networking for young scientists entering the profession.
