Sean Bugel, Ph.D., U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

I am an environmental toxicologist with 15+ years of experience in the fields of environmental science and toxicology. My professional interests generally center on the adverse developmental and reproductive effects of environmental contaminants and their mechanisms of toxicity. I have extensive experience working with contaminant issues in New Jersey, particularly the NY-NJ Harbor Estuary. Presently, I am a Toxicologist for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in the NJ Field Office Environmental Response and Restoration group. I am the USFWS Case Manager for the Natural Resource Damage Assessments in New Jersey, and I oversee injury assessment and restoration on several cases such as the Diamond Alkali and Berry’s Creek Superfund Sites. I received my B.S. in Biology from Seton Hall University in 2005, and my M.S./Ph.D. in Environmental Toxicology from Rutgers University in 2011. I previously worked at Oregon State University in the Department of Molecular and Environmental Toxicology as a Postdoctoral Fellow and Sr. Research Assistant Professor (2011-2020). I also currently teach an Environmental Toxicology course at Rutgers University for the Department of Environmental Sciences.

In the past, I had the honor of serving as the student representative on the Board of Directors for HDC-SETAC between 2006 and 2009. Given my excitement to return to the region, I am eager to reconnect with HDC-SETAC and contribute as a member of the Board of Directors. My main goal is to drive the growth of HDC-SETAC while fostering increased student engagement throughout the region.
