 DR. BILL FISH's research centers on the transformation and transport of heavy metals and other contaminants in soil, surface water, sediment, and groundwater systems. He has a particular interest in the linkages of chemistry and biology to transport processes and contaminant cleanup strategies. Dr. Fish has over 30 years of experience in applied research in environmental chemistry.

His research into the fate and transport of heavy metals and organic contaminants has been supported by a wide range of organizations including the U.S. EPA, U.S. Department of Energy, U.S. Geological Survey, National Science Foundation, Oregon Dept. of Agriculture, Metro, Port of Portland, and the Portland Bureau of Environmental Services.

Dr. Fish has worked at many impacted sites such as the Columbia Slough, Rock Creek, Camas Swale Creek (Eugene, OR), Pompton Lakes (NJ) and several cleanup sites in California.
