Soheil Hosseini

Congratulations to Soheil Hosseini on winning the 2014-15 Institute for Environmental Policy Pre-Doctoral Fellowship. Hosseini, a third year Environmental Engineering Ph.D. student advised by Interim Department Head, Professor Karl Rockne, initially worked on the Great Lakes Sediment Surveillance Program (GLSSP) funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), doing in-depth field research, while mentoring and training undergraduate interns in the lab to perform multi-stage analysis on tight deadlines. With his award-winning research project, “Controls on the Accumulation and Transformation of Semi-Volatile Halogenated Persistent Bioaccumulative Toxic Compounds in the Great Lakes,” Hosseini seeks to better understand processes affecting both the sources and fate of persistent bioaccumulative toxic compounds (PBTs) in the Great Lakes sediment, so that he can contribute to the improvement of pollution control and resource management for the Great Lakes.
