During the course of more than seven years of research and development related to specialized analytical methods for the determination of trace metals in complex matrices, Ms. Hernandez has presented her findings at a number of prestigious environmental conferences and been published in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Shortly after joining EcoChem in 2012, Michela leveraged her knowledge of environmental chemistry and began supporting the allocation process for natural resource damage liability due to chemical contamination at regional superfund sites. Thorough research, detailed documentation, and a transparent process allows Michela to facilitate settlements satisfactory to oversight agencies and potentially responsible parties alike.
