Carrie McDonough

Carrie is a postdoctoral fellow at Colorado School of Mines, where she uses advanced analytical chemistry techniques (LC-QToF-MS) to identify environmental pollutants of emerging concern in drinking water and human blood. She received her Ph.D. in Chemical Oceanography from the University of Rhode Island in 2017 and her B.Sc. in Chemistry from MIT in 2008. Carrie has worked with groups of graduate students to found two blogs, oceanbites.org  and envirobites.org, which translate recent oceanography and environmental science research articles for broad audiences. Carrie is interested in conducting research that addresses the health concerns of communities impacted by drinking water and air pollutants, and in ways to effectively recruit and train citizen scientists to participate in environmental monitoring studies. In her free time, Carrie likes to make music and brew beer.
