DetlefKnappeWebDetlef Knappe (North Carolina State University, USA)
Detlef Knappe is the S. James Ellen Distinguished Professor of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering at NC State University. He is the Deputy Director of NC State’s Superfund Center “Environmental and Health Effects of PFAS” and is a member of the Center for Human Health and the Environment. Dr. Knappe is interested in drinking water quality and treatment, water reuse, organic micropollutants, development of water treatment processes for polar and persistent organic pollutants, and the fate of organic pollutants in solid waste landfills. He is a Trustee of the American Water Works Association’s (AWWA’s) Water Science and Research Division, and he is a member of the North Carolina Secretaries’ Science Advisory Board.

BradClarkeWebBradley Clarke (University of Melbourne, Australia)
Dr. Bradley Clarke is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Melbourne. He is also the lead researcher of the Australian Laboratory of Emerging Contaminants (ALEC). Dr. Clarke’s research group in ALEC focusses on occurrence, fate and attenuation of emerging contaminants like PFAS, microplastics, and POPs in water, biosolids and other environmental media.

CarrieMcDonoughWebCarrie McDonough (Stony Brook University, USA)
Carrie McDonough is Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at Stony Brook University. Dr. McDonough is an environmental chemist working at the intersection of environmental organic chemistry, environmental engineering, and public health using cutting-edge field monitoring and analytical chemistry techniques to study the fate, transport, and biological effects of anthropogenic organic contaminants including PFAS. Her overarching objective is to understand human and ecosystem health risk associated with organic contaminants in water and to identify particular compounds of concern that should be prioritized for remediation and toxicological investigation.
