Stephanie C. Bolyard is a PhD candidate in Environmental Engineering at the University of Central Florida and an Environmental Research and Education Foundation doctoral scholar. Her research focuses on exploring ways to bring landfills to completion so that they will not represent a threat to human health or the environment in the future. She received her B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Florida and M.S. in Environmental Engineering from the University of Central Florida. Her research interests include the fate of nanomaterials in municipal solid waste landfills, waste stabilization, post closure care, and organics characterization. Stephanie received her bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the University of Florida (2008) and master’s degree in environmental engineering from the University of Central Florida (2012). Her master’s thesis focused on studying the fate of nanomaterials in municipal solid waste landfills. She has also worked for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and as a consultant with Brown and Caldwell prior to starting her PhD. While working in consulting she was involved in integrated solid waste management planning evaluations, residential recycling feasibility and waste characterization studies, landfill closure stabilization evaluations, stormwater pollution prevention plans, and preparing permit applications for solid waste management facilities.
