Project Description

Dr. Aeppli is an environmental chemist and a senior research scientist at Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences. Dr. Aeppli has studied oil weathering at natural oil seeps, in Arctic conditions, and after major oil spills, including theDeepwater Horizonoil spill. He received his masteris degree in chemistry from the University of Bern, Switzerland, and his doctorate in environmental chemistry from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. Postdoctoral fellowships took him to Stockholm University, where he investigated the dynamics of halogenated compounds, and to Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, where he studied biodegradation and photooxidation of petroleum hydrocarbons. Dr. Aeppliis research is helping to understand the formation, fate, and effects of oil transformation products. This knowledge will lead to an improved assessment of the impacts that oil spills have on humans and the environment.
