Program Description:


Nancy Kinner

Nancy Kinner, Ph.D is a professor of civil and environmental engineering at the University of New Hampshire. Dr. Kinner's main areas of research interest are bioremediation of contaminated subsurface environments and more generally, environmental microbiology. She is a member of the Environmental Research Group (ERG) at UNH and has conducted research on wastewater biofilm microbiology, the role of protists in subsurface contaminant degradation, and petroleum and chlorinated solvent bioremediation. Currently, she is conducting research on enhanced bioremediation of oil-contaminated salt marshes the effects of acclimation and cold temperatures on bioventing of soils contaminated with No. 2 fuel oil, and mtBE distribution in Payus Bay, NH Dr. Kinner is also directing a multiyear, multi-investigator project studying characterization and bioremediation of contaminated bedrock. She has also conducted research on techniques to remove radon from drinking water.
