Laura A. Schifman, PhD

Graduate Program Manager
Boston University

I'm an interdisciplinary environmental scientist with a focus on hydrology, ecosystem services, contaminant fate and transport, and nonpoint source pollution. I am interested in how biological, chemical, and physical processes can be integrated into successfully planning the (re)development of the sustainable city model in both, emerging and existing cities. My emphasis lies in how green infrastructure and urban soils can act as a form of integrated water resources management that generates multiple ecosystem services, including flood management, public health through vector borne disease control, air and water quality improvements.
