Janet S. Herman (AWIS Member since 1999) is professor at the University of Virginia in the Department of Environmental Sciences and Director of an inter-departmental group of faculty and students from Environmental Sciences, Civil Engineering and Chemical Engineering in the Program of Interdisciplinary Research in Contaminant Hydrogeology. Her research focuses on the evolution of the chemical composition of groundwater through water-rock interactions, and she collaborates with microbial ecologists and hydrogeologists in the study of contaminated soils and aquifers. She is particularly interested in interactions between surface water and groundwater as applied to karst terrains and coastal aquifers. Her recent research focuses on emerging contaminants in water supplies, i.e., the environmental fate of contaminants in agricultural watersheds and in urban stormwater systems. She serves as Councilor for the Geological Society of America and the International Association of GeoChemistry. She is also currently serving as President of the Karst Waters Institute. She looks forward to working in the Hydrological Sciences program.
