Dr. Reiner's research interests are focused in the area of chemicals of emerging concern in environmental and human samples. She has worked in determining contaminant concentrations in sediment, water, food, biota, and humans, as well as establishing baseline information on potential exposure pathways. Presently, her research goals are to improve analytical measurements of chemicals of emerging concern through the certification of reference materials, instrument development, methods development, and other quality assurance activities. Dr. Reiner is program coordinator for organic measurements in the Environmental Chemical Sciences Group located at the Hollings Marine Laboratory.
Prior to her employment at NIST she was a postdoctoral fellow at the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) where her research focused on characterizing the transport and fate of persistent perfluorinated compounds in the environment. She has also worked at Accustandard, Inc. synthesizing and purifying persistent organic chemicals, including pesticides, PCBs, dioxins, and PBDEs. She has authored and co-authored several peer-reviewed publications and presented at many national and international conferences.
