About the Contributor

Dr. Upal Ghosh, is a professor in the department of Chemical, Biochemical, and Environmental Engineering at the University of Maryland Baltimore County. He has received a B.Tech in Chemical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, India, an M.S. and Ph.D. in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the State University of New York at Buffalo and completed a Postdoc at Carnegie Mellon University. He has also worked as a Research Associate at Stanford University. He is currently the Principal Investigator for the Development of in-situ Mercury Remediation Approaches Based on Methylmercury Bioavailability NIEHS R01 grant and recently completed and NIEHS R01 grant titled Combining Bioavailability Assays with Modeling to Predict PCBs in Fish after Remediation. His group performs research in environmental engineering and science with a focus on the fate, effects, and remediation of toxic pollutants in the environment. They use multidisciplinary tools to investigate exposure and bioavailability of organic and metal contaminants to organisms. This new understanding is then used to develop novel remediation technologies and site-specific remediation goals. Recent projects have focused on contaminants such as PCBs, PAHs, pesticides, dioxins, and mercury.
