qualifications: PhD

position: Associate Professor

department: Biological Systems Engineering

Dr. Leigh-Anne Krometis is an Associate Professor and Elizabeth and James E Turner Jr Faculty Fellow of Biological Systems Engineering at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, VA, USA. She earned both her BS and MS at Virginia Tech and her PhD in Environmental Sciences and Engineering at the University of North Carolina’s Gillings School of Public Health. Her research aims to promote sustainable development of water resources while preserving public health though the identification of potential environmental threats and the engineering of solutions to minimize exposure and risk. A substantial portion of her projects focus on documenting the consequences of inadequate water and sanitation systems in the Appalachian Coalfields on both human and ecosystem health. Current projects intentionally examine the potential intersections of socioeconomic and demographic factors, infrastructure, and hydrology on patterns of human environmental exposures to emerging contaminants, including PFAS, antibiotic resistant bacteria, and waterborne lead.
