Amanda facilitates communication and collaboration for research conducted at the Santa Susana Field Laboratory in Southern California, including field, laboratory, and data interpretation activities; writing technical reports and manuscripts; and project timeline and budget oversight. Amanda has been a part of the SSFL team since 2002, when she started her MSc thesis at the University of Waterloo. Amanda’s MS. thesis focused on the bioitic and abiotic degradation of trichloroethene and evaluating hydrochemical processes in fractured sandstone, using chemical and isotopic data. As a research associate with Morwick G360, Amanda’s current research includes, i) examination of the hydrochemistry and isotopes of groundwater discharging from seeps and springs and ii) development of portable drilling methods for instrumentation of seeps in isolated locations.
