Allen D. Uhler, Ph.D.
Dr. Allen Uhler has over 35 years of experience in the field of environmental chemistry, with a specialization in 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 and man-made chemicals in the environment. Dr. Uhler has worked on hundreds of projects focused on understanding the occurrence, physical behavior, sources, and fate of anthropogenic contaminants including PAHs, PCBs, chlorinated pesticides, chlorinated dioxins and furans, organometallic compounds, trace metals and specialized industrial chemicals in waters, soils, sediments, and soil- and air-borne vapors. Dr. Uhler has consulted extensively on technical allocation processes related to the Superfund program. He has published or presented more than 150 treatises on the analysis, occurrence, distribution, and fate of persistent anthropogenic industrial chemicals in the environment. As a highly experienced analytical chemist, Dr. Uhler is familiar with the operations, practices, and reporting standards of environmental chemistry laboratories. As a former laboratory director, he is knowledgeable about data quality requirements, data fitness, and data usability as it pertains to the suitability, benefits, and limitations of chemical characterization data used in environmental, ecological risk and human health investigations.
