Dr. Michelle Crimi is an Associate Professor in the Institute for a Sustainable Environment at Clarkson University. Her areas of research interest include the development of in situ remediation technologies for treating contaminated groundwater, chemical oxidation of organic contaminants, impacts of in situ remediation on aquifer quality, and the integration of treatment technologies for optimized risk reduction. Dr. Crimi was co-author of the first reference text on in situ chemical oxidation: Principles and Practices of In Situ Chemical Oxidation Using Permanganate, and co-edited a book in the SERDP/ESTCP Remediation Technology Monograph Series: In Situ Chemical Oxidation for Groundwater Remediation. She has delivered invited presentations and workshops at numerous conferences in the United States and abroad. She earned her B.S. in Industrial Hygiene and Environmental Toxicology from Clarkson University, her M.S. in Environmental Health from Colorado State University, and her Ph.D. in Environmental Science and Engineering from the Colorado School of Mines. She spent the 2014-2015 academic year as a Fulbright Scholar at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in Durban, South Africa. Dr. Crimi teaches courses in Environmental Science, Groundwater Hydrology, Toxicology, Biogeochemical Systems, Risk Analysis, Global Service Learning, and multidisciplinary project-based courses.
