Environmental Biogeochemistry

The Environmental Biogeochemistry Group at Eawag  follows a research agenda to study:

The chair for Environmental Biogechemistry Professor Janet Hering, Director of Eawag, Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology

Janet Hering has specialized in techniques for making contaminated water drinkable, and in the biogeochemical behaviour of trace metals. Hering is no newcomer to Eawag, having carried out postdoctoral research at the institute from 1988 to 1991. She studied chemistry at Cornell University and graduated with a Master’s degree from Harvard University in 1981. She earned a PhD in oceanography from MIT in 1988. At the University of California in Los Angeles, she held the post of Assistant Professor (1991) and later Associate Professor (1995). On transferring to the California Institute of Technology in 1997, she retained her ties with the University of California in the capacity of Adjunct Professor until 1999. In 2002, she was awarded a professorship at Caltech, and she became Engineering Executive Officer at Keck Laboratories in 2003. Janet Hering also sits on the editorial advisory board of Environmental Science and Technology.
