Biography

Deborah Stoliker is the Deputy Director of the USGS Water Mission Area Earth System Processes Division, the single focal point for disciplinary and interdiscplinary process studies, research and development.  Prior to her current position, Deborah served in the USGS Water Mission Area's National Research Program - Western Branch, first as a hydrologist beginning in 2003 and then as the Assistant Branch Chief from 2015.  Deborah's research interests focus on understanding biogeochemical processes occurring at the mineral-water interface controlling fate and transport of contaminants in the environment.  She holds a master's degree in Geological and Environmental Sciences from Stanford University and a bachelor's degree in Chemistry from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.
