Jennifer Cherrier, Ph.D., is a professor and researcher in Earth and Environmental Sciences at Brooklyn College-CUNY and the Graduate Center-CUNY. She is also the President and Founder of Waterway Ecologics. Her 30 years of research expertise are in aquatic sciences (marine/fresh/groundwater) with a general focus on microbial C/N/P cycling and how natural and human inputs of each, affects aquatic ecosystem dynamics. Her research also focuses on water resource sustainability and nature-based approaches for offsetting human pollutant loading impacts to aquatic systems. Jennifer's research group has developed a hybrid blue-green technology, eco-WEIR TM (patented in 2017), a smart-sensored system that augments green infrastructure to consistently control inflow water retention times, maximize pollutant removal efficiencies, and allows for water storage and reuse. She is an Earth Leadership Fellow and a National Academy of Sciences Frontiers of Science Kavli Alum.
