Emily Marron Principal Investigator

Emily Marron is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at the University of Utah. She is an environmental engineer interested in understanding the impacts of chemical contaminants on human health and the environment. Dr. Marron received her Ph.D. in Civil & Environmental Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley, M.Sc. in Environmental Chemistry at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich, Switzerland, and B.S. in Environmental Engineering from The Ohio State University. In her free time, Dr. Marron likes to explore the mountains and deserts of Utah with her husband and their pup.


Michal Lieberman Graduate Student

Michal completed her bachelor’s degree in soil science and hydrology in upstate New York, before going to work as a laboratory technician for a water/wastewater utility in California. She is currently working on her masters, studying the formation reactions of disinfection byproducts found in potable reuse treatment. She hopes to one day design water and wastewater treatment systems for municipalities and smaller communities. When she is not in the lab, Michal can be found in one of the canyons trying to climb rocks, run trails, or ski. If you’ve checked all the canyons and she is not there, she is probably home with her cat.



Celie Roth Undergraduate Student

Celie Roth is in her third year at the University of Utah studying chemical engineering with a minor in Spanish. Celie found a passion for the environment and all things conservation while in high school. Her special interests in environmental engineering are clean water, renewable energy, and recycling. While she is from Kentucky, she loves living in Utah for all the outdoor activities available. She also enjoys playing the cello, reading, playing with her Great Dane, and baking.



Tuna Lab Mascot and #1 Good Girl

Tuna is enthusiastic about environmental chemistry as long as treats are on the table. She is not good about keeping safety goggles on or wearing close toed shoes, so she mostly stays outside of the lab. Tuna loves running, walking, snacking, wagging her tail, attacking sprinklers, and kissing whoever will give her just the tiniest bit of affection.
