Great Lakes Regional Center - Ann Arbor, MI
Michael is Staff Scientist with NWF’s Great Lakes office and has over two decades experience working on Great Lakes science and science-policy issues. After an initial emphasis on toxic chemicals - including mercury sources, fate and transport, ecological and human health effects, and pollution prevention and control strategies - his work expanded to other areas, including aquatic invasive species, climate change mitigation and adaptation, and scientific and policy aspects of Great Lakes restoration more broadly. He has M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Water Chemistry from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, has published a number of papers and reports, has appointments at the University of Michigan and Georgia Regents University, and has served on over two dozen technical and advisory committees, including currently on the International Joint Commission Science Advisory Board.
