Dr. Uhler has more than 25 years of experience in environmental and analytical chemistry. His specialty is environmental forensics—the integration of advanced chemical analyses, chemical fate and behavior, source identification techniques, and operational practices—to determine the nature, sources, and fate of industrial chemicals in the environment. Dr. Uhler has conducted hundreds of assessments involving fugitive petroleum in various settings and in sedimentary environments. His extensive studies have also included coal-derived wastes and manmade industrial chemicals, pesticides, and herbicides in diverse environments. Both Dr. Uhler’s B.S. and Ph.D. are in chemistry.
