Environmental Staff

Morgen is an environmental engineer with a background in civil and environmental engineering and microbiology. She has experience in the preparation of environmental compliance surveys; biological sample collection, characterization, and analysis; and microbiological sample preparation and analysis. Her professional interests encompass the fields of applied microbiology and bioremediation. Morgen's doctoral research focused on the influence of physical and environmental influences on the swarming motility of the bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa, with emphases on the influence of type IV pili and the heavy metals cadmium and nickel. During her undergraduate studies she evaluated the feasibility of using biogenic iron oxides as adsorption sites for cadmium, and helped develop and test an iron oxide filter to remove excess phosphorus from water.

Morgen has performed data evaluations; statistical analyses; radiological assessments; collected and processed sediment, groundwater, and soil vapor samples; compiled, managed, and evaluated model data; and has prepared various reports and projects documents for preliminary assessments (PAs), site inspections (SIs), remedial investigations (RIs), treatment studies (TSs), feasibility studies (FSs), remedial action alternatives (RAA), remedial action memorandums (RAMs), and long-term monitoring (LTM) reports. She has also assisted with cost analyses, environmental health evaluations, and human health risk assessments.
