ExxonMobil Oil Spill Response Knowledge Transfer Webinars 6

EM OSR Knowledge Transfer Webinar will be resumed on Feb. 1st, 2022. Our guest speaker is Dr. Christopher Reddy, and he will share his knowledge / experiences and lessons learned on oil spill response from his perspective.

Dr. Chris Reddy is a senior scientist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and studies marine pollution, petroleum geochemistry, and develops natural products for the cosmetics industry. When the Deepwater Horizon disaster occurred in 2010, Reddy pivoted to focus much of his research on this iconic spill. He spent nearly a decade tracing nature’s response to the thousands of chemical compounds released with the spill to determine what biodegraded or evaporated, and what is still present in the Gulf of Mexico. Reddy has extensive experience communicating science to the media, policy makers, and the public. He has written nearly twenty opinion pieces, testified before Congress and Senate five times, and given hundreds of interviews. In 2014 he was honored with the prestigious and international C.C. Patterson Award for leading an innovative breakthrough of fundamental significance in environmental geochemistry, particularly in service to society. More recently, he was honored as a 2018 Fellow in the American Geophysical Union and bestowed with their Ambassador Award.

The ExxonMobil Oil Spill Response Knowledge Transfer Webinar series is a monthly webinar to allow highly experienced OSR experts to communicate their knowledge to attendees. The webinar series will be held every first Tuesday of the month.  We intend to continue the webinars indefinitely depending on response and our ability to schedule appropriate speakers.
