Mr. Litman has 20 years of experience in the field of environmental science, with a specialization in applied environmental chemistry. Since 2010 he has been a consulting scientist at NewFields working in support of industrial clients, state agencies and the federal government. During this time, he has conducted environmental site investigations focused on the characterization of chemical contaminants in support of natural resource damage assessments (NRDA), CERCLA investigations and the development of cost allocation strategies. From 2010 to 2015 he served as a laboratory program manager for the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill NRDA with a focus on data usability and laboratory management. He has worked in a variety of laboratory settings as both an analytical chemist specializing in hydrocarbon chemistry and as a laboratory manager. His research interests include the history of industrial chemistry and the development of novel laboratory methods that can be used to characterize emerging contaminants. Mr. Litman is currently working on the development of a new method to characterize polar metabolites formed through the degradation of petroleum. Mr. Litman holds a B.S. in environmental chemistry from Norwich University and an M.S. in Marine and Environmental Science from Northeastern University.
