Dylan Eberle, Ph.D., a scientist at Geosyntec Consultants, assists clients with the characterization and remediation of soil and groundwater contaminated with both priority pollutants and emerging contaminants. His work with emerging contaminants includes working on sites impacted by per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and 1,4-dioxane, along with lead authorship on articles appearing in Chemosphere and Environmental Science and Technology.
Eberle’s PFAS experience has included leading site investigations for clients, development and evaluation of conceptual site models, environmental forensics, litigation support, risk assessment, and research into destructive remediation technologies. He has helped develop standard operating procedures for PFAS sampling and has led field investigations at military bases, airports, and manufacturing facilities.
In addition, Eberle has worked on several confidential PFAS litigation support cases involving industrial facilities, landfills, airports, and drinking water supplies. His litigation support experience includes conducting research regarding contaminated site history, regulatory compliance, drinking water distribution networks, remedial efficiency, contaminant exposure and duration, and forensic evaluations. His findings have been used to assist expert witnesses in developing their professional opinions.
A specialist in PFAS and emerging contaminants; innovative remediation technologies; environmental hydrogeology; and litigation support, Eberle holds a Ph.D. and M.S. in environmental and Earth sciences, and a B.A. in geology.
