Dr. Hoppe-Jones graduated with a Ph.D. from the Colorado School of Mines in 2012. M.S. Food Chemistry Technical University of Berlin. Her research interest was to investigate the fate and transport of emerging organic micropollutants during riverbank filtration (RBF) and artifical recharge and recovery (ARR). She was employing state-of-the-art analytical methods using GC/MS for quantification of target compounds and employing soil-column studies to identify removal mechanisms in a controlled environment. The research was verified through monitoring efforts at a local RBF demonstration site and full-scale RBF installations in Iowa and Kentucky. Her research was funded by the City of Aurora, CH2MHill and Awwa Research Foundation. Professor Drewes was her faculty advisor.
