Elizabeth J. Tomaszewski, Ph.D.

Dr. Elizabeth Tomaszewski is a Research Chemist with the USGS Geology, Energy & Minerals (GEM) Science Center in Reston, VA.

Dr. Elizabeth J. Tomaszewski is a Biogeochemist whose research aims to understand the coupling of carbon and metal cycles in environments affected by anthropogenic activity (i.e., energy and mining activities) and extreme climate events (i.e., flooding and wildfires). She studies how coupled cycles in these environments influence water quality and environmental health. Of particular interest are processes at the water-mineral interface and those mediated by microbial activity. Dr. Tomaszewski joined the U.S. Geological Survey in 2020 as a Physical Scientist in the Water Mission Area and moved to the Geology, Energy & Minerals Science Center in 2023 where she is currently a Research Chemist.
