LAURIE LAPAT-POLASKO

VP / National Director of Remediation Matrix New World Engineering

Phoenix, Arizona, USA, American

It’s rare to find someone who loves bacteria, but for Dr Laurie LaPat-Polasko, they are her heroes! Laurie specialises in the discovery and use of microbes to biodegrade harmful contaminants in water and soil. After isolating a bacterium that now bears her name, Pseudomonas LP, Laurie developed a passion for identifying innovative ways to clean up our planet, and working with her former employer Jacques Cousteau, Laurie addressed pollution issues in the Mediterranean Sea. Laurie earned her BS Biology from Chatham University, Engineers and MS in Civil & Environmental Engineering from Stanford University and PhD in Microbiology from the University of Maryland.
