Dr. Lindsey Garner is an environmental toxicologist with over a decade of project management, aquatic toxicology, water resources, permitting, litigation support, and risk assessment experience. She has worked on a variety of large and complex projects involving multiple stakeholders including federal, state, and local government agencies, private industry, legal professionals, and the public, serving as a subject matter expert and resource lead for environmental analyses in support of both CEQA and NEPA compliance. She has evaluated the toxicity, fate, and transport for various anthropogenic and natural compounds, including oil constituents, pesticides, drilling fluid-related materials, and metals, in support of environmental impact reports (EIRs), natural resource damage assessments (NRDAs), ecological risk assessments (ERAs), and various litigated cases.
Dr. Garner uses her keen attention to detail, honed through her scientific research as well as consulting experience, to provide clients with scientifically-sound, accurate, and concise deliverables. She is adept at tailoring analyses and work products for various audiences. As a project manager, she effectively coordinates large teams, including various subconsultants, to ensure that the project team completes high-quality deliverables on time and within budget.
Her doctoral research involved examining the molecular mechanisms by which polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) cause developmental cardiotoxicity in fish. She also investigated the mechanistic developmental toxicity of dioxins, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), metals, nanomaterials, and emerging contaminants.
