Ms. Krahforst has over 35 years of experience in environmental chemistry specializing in analytical and forensic chemistry. Her main research focuses on characterizing the nature, extent and source(s) of organic contamination (i.e., petroleum products, manufactured gas plant (MGP) residues, and tar derived wastes) using advanced analytical methods and sophisticated chemometric data interpretation techniques.  She has managed a variety of environmental investigations and has direct experience in petroleum characterization and identification. 

Ms. Krahforst is trained in standard U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) analytical methodologies and is particularly experienced in the detailed forensic analysis of petroleum hydrocarbons and other anthropogenic contaminants by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) and gas chromatography/flame ionization detection (GC/FID).  Ms. Krahforst’s strong analytical background and broad experience is routinely applied in monitoring data quality and project-specific compliance for large, multi-year data collection efforts.
