His work involves performing environmental audits, due diligence reviews, and stationary-source evaluations; providing environmental integration and compliance support; developing compliance management plans and systems; and preparing permit applications and notifications required to site and construct new facilities and expand existing facilities. He also provides on-site, multimedia, environmental-compliance support.
