Jennifer Arblaster is a Project Scientist based in Vermont with seven years of experience in bioaccumulation modeling, ecological and human health risk assessment, sediment site characterization, and evaluation of environmental quality criteria.
She has supported multinational clients addressing environmental liability and risk issues associated with a variety of contaminated sites, including several large, multi-stakeholder contaminated sediment sites and contaminated upland industrial sites in North America and Europe.
Jennifer's experience includes the evaluation of the ecological and human health risk issues associated with per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). She has conducted strategic planning for future aqueous film forming foam (AFFF) requirements and potential liabilities, evaluated aquatic toxicity and environmental screening levels for perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS), and performed site-specific risk assessment of PFAS. Additionally, she and other Geosyntec colleagues recently developed a guidance document for the U.S. Department of Defense regarding best practices for the ecological risk assessment of PFAS.
In addition to her general skills in environmental investigation, analysis, and risk assessment, Jennifer has specialized experience in fugacity-based food web bioaccumulation modeling for water and sediment quality assessments, and Monte Carlo Simulation techniques for environmental modeling.
