Anna graduated with a Master’s in Environmental Science and Engineering from the Colorado School of Mines in December of 2008. She worked as a scientific associate for AQWATEC under the direction of Dr. Eric Dickenson. Her projects included performing and developing gas chromatography (GC) methods for analysis of environmental samples to detect trace amounts of disinfection byproducts (DBPs); trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAs). Additionally, Anna assisted John Stevens-Garmon with activated sludge biosorption and biodegradation experiments in order to assess effectiveness of various removal mechanisms of trace organic compounds.
