Great Lakes Regional Center - Ann Arbor, MI
Michael Murray’s work has focused on the scientific and policy aspects of toxic chemicals in the Great Lakes region and more broadly, including mercury sources, fate and transport, ecological and human health effects, and control options; water quality criteria and total maximum daily load plans; and the development and communication of fish consumption advisories. His work has more recently expanded to other areas, including aquatic invasive species, food web disruption, and climate change in the Great Lakes region.
Murray received master and doctorate degrees in water chemistry from the University of Wisconsin at Madison.
He has authored or co-authored a number of peer-reviewed papers and book chapters, as well as numerous reports. In addition to duties with NWF, Murray has been an adjunct lecturer in environmental health sciences at the University of Michigan’s School of Public Health, where he has taught courses in environmental chemistry and water quality management.
