Ms. Bernadette Wright is a licensed geologist with 6 years of experience providing ligation support and technical analyses for environmental remediation, site characterization, and regulatory compliance. She supports remedial investigations, conceptual site model development, data interpretation, and field effort design. Her project management experience includes project scope and cost management, program deliverables tracking, and authoring of project management plans. Ms. Wright has extensive experience leading environmental sampling efforts, including collecting sediment, soil, soil vapor, groundwater, surface water, stormwater, and porewater samples.

Ms. Wright’s graduate work focused on understanding movement of material in the subsurface during tectonic events. On a microscopic scale, she modeled diffusion of constituents to mineral nucleation sites and designed a new geochemical analytical method for quantifying rates of garnet nucleation and growth. On a macroscopic scale, she assessed the mechanisms of regional crustal flow in the Montagne Noire Gneiss Dome in France by evaluating pressure-temperature-time-deformation paths of samples from distinct tectonic zones.
