Biography:
Jill Stewart is an associate professor in the Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering at the University of North Carolina, and she serves as deputy director for the UNC Center for Galápagos Studies. Her research interests are in environmental health microbiology with a focus on water quality. She is developing novel tools and technologies to detect and track pathogens in water. She is also interested in evaluating impacts of non-point source pollution, and in evaluating the manner in which land-based activities (e.g., development, stormwater management, agricultural practices) can affect human exposure to microbial contaminants. Overall, this research is leading to a greater understanding of how environmental conditions can affect human health, and how humans themselves influence this process.
