Dr. Aaron Peacock has worked as an environmental scientist at Haley & Aldrich Inc. in Oak Ridge, Tennessee since 2006. Since 1995, he has worked both in academia and industry, specializing in biotechnology and environmental molecular diagnostics (EMDs). He has worked extensively in the development, evaluation, and implementation of new technologies for environmental surveillance, monitored natural attenuation (MNA), and enhanced bioremediation of metals and organic contaminants. His current focus has been on the use and development of electronic sensors and EMDs to aid in the evaluation of sites for in-situ bioremediation/MNA potential, performance of remediation programs, and forensics of non-performing sites. Aaron has been a member of the ITRC Environmental Molecular Diagnostics team since 2010. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Soil Science in 1997, a master’s degree in Biosystems Engineering Technology in 2000, and a doctoral degree in Environmental Science in 2007, all from The University of Tennessee in Knoxville, TN.
