Join us for the Sylvia M. Stoesser Lecture in Chemistry with Dr. Regina Easley for her lecture: Journeys in Chemical Oceanography and Metrology.

This event will be in person. You may also join via a live stream link. Register here to join virtually. After registering, a link to join will be provided the week of the event.

Journeys in Chemical Oceanography and Metrology
The environmental management of coastal ecosystems, particularly zones which are involved in activities such as shellfish aquaculture, require ongoing efforts to understand both long-term and seasonal variations in coastal pH. The traceability of these measurements in the field is essential to sustaining effective management practices to support these important ecological and economical resources. Collaborative research projects which utilize metrological tools such as uncertainty analysis and interlaboratory studies will be highlighted to demonstrate the power of metrology in improving the measurement of oceanographic systems.

Dr. Regina Easley is a Research Chemist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) located in Gaithersburg, MD in the Chemical Sciences Division of the Materials Measurement Laboratory. Dr. Easley joined NIST in 2014 with over 15 years of experience in analytical chemistry and oceanography. In addition to her role as Research Chemist, she also serves as an affiliated faculty member at Georgetown University in a newly developed master’s degree in Environmental Metrology and Policy (EMAP). This unique program is a collaboration between GU, NIST and the Environmental Protection Agency. Dr. Easley is a graduate of Hampton University (B.S. in chemistry) and obtained her M.S. in organic chemistry from the University of California, Los Angeles, prior to completing her doctoral degree in chemical oceanography at the University of South Florida. During her free time, Dr. Easley enjoys serving as a volunteer in the Sant Ocean Hall at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.
