Samantha Fung

As part of the Environmental Fluids Mechanics and Hydrobiogeochemistry ( ) groups at UW, I am currently researching arsenic contamination of lake sediments in the region. Contaminated areas in the Puget Sound region have been designated as Superfund sites; my project is part of the Superfund Research Program funded by the NIEHS.  I have been working with my advisers, Rebecca Neumann and Alex Horner-Devine, to study how a variety of factors influence cycling and organism uptake of arsenic in various systems.

I am originally from Davis, CA and moved to Seattle after completing a B.S. in Civil and Environmental Engineering at UCLA. Outside of doing research, I enjoy gardening, cooking, knitting and most outdoor activities!
