2010—Bachelors of Science in Chemistry: Environmental Chemistry focus (French Minor) Oregon State University, Corvallis, OR

2010-Present—Ph.D. in Agricultural and Environmental Chemistry, University of California, Davis, Davis, CA (anticipated June 2015)

Current Research: Caitlin is investigating the degradation pathways and environmental partitioning of imazosulfuron, a sulfonylurea herbicide recently approved for use in the US. Her work focuses on the fate of imazosulfuron under simulated California rice field conditions.

Past Research:

Working for Dr. Jennifer Field at Oregon State University, Caitlin was involved in research investigating illicit and legal drugs in wastewater by LC-MS/MS. She was awarded a grant for undergraduate research examining nicotine and its metabolites in sewage. Upon arrival at UC Davis, she assisted Dr. Tessa Fojut in the formulation of pesticide water quality criteria for permethrin, a pyrethroid insecticide.
