Personal Statement:

Dr. Holland joined the Environmental Health Science Department as an adjunct faculty member in August of 2006 after incorporating her business, JEH Consulting, Inc., in January of 2006. As an independent consultant, she primarily supports the United States Department of Energy Offices of Environmental Management and River Protection in the remediation of the Hanford Nuclear Waste Site in Washington State. Her research for DOE involves the refinement of chemical processing steps to separate key nonradioactive species, namely chromium and aluminum, from high level radioactive species to reduce the total mass of high level residuals requiring management.

Her research interests further support technologies which enhance management of nuclear residuals in support of nonproliferation as well as applications of advanced oxidation, electrolytic, and other innovative technologies for safe drinking water, sustainability, and homeland security.
