Ying Wang, Ph.D. - WSP USA Solutions Inc.
I am a lead geochemist and technical principal at WSP USA, where I serve as a technical task leader for several large Superfund contaminated sediment sites (e.g., Upper Hudson River, Lower Hudson River, Lower Passaic River, Newark Bay, and Newtown Creek). I hold a Ph.D. degree in Physical Chemistry. My professional experience covers a broad range of environmental investigation and remediation work, from ambient air quality monitoring and health effect assessment to groundwater transport modeling, sediment investigation and remediation. As a geochemist at WSP, my work has been focusing on applying various statistical methods to support remedial investigation, feasibility study, sampling design, remedial design, and environmental pollution forensics at contaminated sediment sites. I have authored or co-authored 27 peer-reviewed publications with over 6,000 citations. I am an active member of the Interstate Technology Regulatory Council (ITRC) PFAS team where I helped updating the AFFF section of ITRC PFAS guidance document.
