Dr. Rodenburg specializes in the fate of persistent organic pollutants (POPs). She’s interested in sewers and the complex microbiology and chemistry occurring there. Lisa an expert in factor analysis (Positive Matrix Factorization) and as a result I have experience in handling large data sets, and has done numerous consulting projects, including several for the NY Academy of Sciences. She is an expert on PCBs in pigments and how they are dispersed into the environment via their use in consumer products. A lot of her work involves using data sets that involve entire watersheds to understand the sources and fate of POPs, including the microbial dehalogenation of POPs occurring in sewers, groundwater, and landfills.
