PROTECT to host Harvard School of Public Health faculty at Dec. 3rd webinar

Dr. James P. Shine
Senior Lecturer on Aquatic Chemistry
Department of Environmental Health
Harvard School of Public Health

Dr. James P. Shine will be speaking on the topic of “Biogeochemical Fate and Human Health Outcomes from Metals at the Tar Creek Superfund Site.” Dr. Shine is on the faculty in the Department of Environmental Health at the Harvard School of Public Health and. His research is in the area of aquatic environmental chemistry, which he applies within an applied environmental health context. Specifically, his research aims to better understand the transport and fate of chemicals in the environment in order to better assess risks, determine appropriate interventions, or set efficient regulatory guidelines.

Dr. Shine’s current research projects range from seafood safety in relation to mercury dynamics in marine & freshwater ecosystems, understanding the role of oxidative processes on the fate and effects of metals associated with mining wastes, development of tools to measure contaminant bioavailability in aquatic ecosystems, and development of engineering strategies to remediate contaminated sediments. He holds a Ph.D. from the University of Massachusetts Boston, and was the recipient of a US EPA CAREER Award in 2000.

The webinar will be held through WebEx. Please email protect-info@coe.neu.edu if you would like to participate and have not received an invitation directly.
