Professional Background

Liz Chapman, PhD, is a Geochemist with ECHELON Applied Geosciences (

Liz received her PhD from the University of Pittsburgh in 2011 under the advisement of Dr. Rosemary Capo. Liz's work focuses on combining strontium (Sr) isotopic data with major and trace element geochemistry to characterize groundwater, surface water, and produced water from various fossil fuel sources. This characterization allows for contaminant tracking through the environment, as well as identifying and quantifying water-rock interactions.
