Jessica L Reiner (Fed)

Research Chemist

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, mainly per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) through the certification of reference materials, instrument development, methods development, and other quality assurance activities. Dr. Reiner is a member of the Biochemical and Exposure Science Group located at the Hollings Marine Laboratory. She has authored and co-authored several peer-reviewed publications and presented at many national and international conferences.
