Our awesome speaker: Lee Blaney received his BS and MS in Environmental Engineering from Lehigh University. In 2011, he finished his PhD at the University of Texas at Austin and started as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical, Biochemical and Environmental Engineering at UMBC. Since that time, Lee has established a research program focused on (1) the occurrence, fate, transport, and toxicity of contaminants of emerging concern in natural and engineered systems and (2) resource recovery from agricultural waste. His projects are predominantly supported by the National Science Foundation programs in Environmental Engineering, Environmental Chemical Sciences, and Environmental Sustainability.
