Expert provides over 40 years experience involved in compliance, permitting, and assessing environmental impacts of landfills, wastewater treatment facilities and contaminated sites. He previously worked 23 years for a large waste company and most recently as the Director of New Technology. In this role, Expert was responsible for developing innovative methods for environmental assessment, remediation, and proactive management, operation and design of active and closed landfills. He developed and managed over 30 bioreactor landfill demonstrations and helped in the permitting and conceptual design of a bioreactor working with the state of Kentucky on a cooperative research basis. Expert implemented innovative remedial technologies for wastewater, leachate, surface water, soil and groundwater for both regional and specific Superfund sites, hazardous waste landfills, waste water ponds, and solid waste sites for groundwater, surface water, landfill gas, and vapor control. He also developed innovative monitoring and assessment techniques for fingerprinting sources of contaminants in solids, aqueous and gaseous phases.He is an expert in demonstration landfill gas to groundwater contamination for hazardous and solid waste sites.

Expert also has studied affects on groundwater and vadose zone contaminant impacts before and after capping of landfills and remedial properties. He has demonstrated alternate technologies for waste management and also for leachate and wastewater treatment, such as vertical wetlands and innovative treatment systems, to manage leachate and contaminated groundwater. He also has evaluated alternate waste management technologies for energy production including pyrolysis, gasification, plasma arc, and other treatment/conversion methods.

Expert is a recognized expert in groundwater quality, conventional and alternate landfill caps, bioreactor landfills, landfill gas, hydrogeology, innovative wastewater and leachate treatment, surface water quality management, and alternative waste management technologies. He has lead numerous State and Federal workshops for groundwater monitoring and assessment techniques, bioreactors, and innovative technologies for leachate and groundwater remediation.
