Dr. Lindsey Garner is an environmental toxicologist with 14 years of aquatic toxicology, water resources, permitting, litigation support, and risk assessment experience.
Dr. Garner 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.
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.
She has also served as subject matter expert and resource lead for various sections of EIRs, environmental impact statements (EISs), and environmental assessments (EAs).
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.
Dr. Garner has published peer-reviewed manuscripts, prepared grant applications, served as a peer reviewer for various scientific journals, and presented her research findings at international scientific meetings.
