Plastics in the environment, what we know and don’t know

October 12, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

  • This event has passed.

Chris Reddy, Senior Scientist, Department of Marine Chemistry and Geochemistry, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution studies marine pollution, petroleum geochemistry, and develops natural products for the cosmetics industry.

Reddy became interested in plastics in 2008 when he collaborated with Dr. Kara Lavender Law at Sea Education Association to study the distribution and chemical composition of plastic in the North Atlantic Ocean. Their work led to foundational papers in ocean plastics research published in Science and the Marine Pollution Bulletin.

To make meaningful progress in this field, Reddy believes the scientific community must establish a common language and framework for studying plastics.

Preregistration is strongly encouraged to ensure enough seating.
