Dr. Wolfe is a federal post-doctoral Environmental Scientist in GWERD’s Subsurface Remediation Branch. She holds a B.S. in Marine Science from the University of South Carolina and a Ph.D. in Geology from the University of Pittsburgh. She is a member of the Geochemical Society, the Geological Society of America, the American Geophysical Union (AGU), and the Mineralogical Society of America. Her research interests are monitored natural attenuation, geologic sequestration of carbon, and hydraulic fracturing.

Dr. Wolfe’s research uses experimental research, geochemical and isotopic data to investigate rates and mechanisms of mineral–fluid interactions, as well as those in solution. These data are integrated with geochemical modeling in order to understand how contaminants are cycled, mobilized, transported, and transformed within the environment. Current areas of research include:
