Diana Lin, PhD
Clean Water Program
Diana Lin received a B.S. degree in Chemical Engineering from the California Institute of Technology, and a Ph.D. degree in Environmental Engineering and Science from Stanford University. Her dissertation investigated natural attenuation processes from DDT-contaminated sediment in an alpine lake and engineering methods to amend contaminated sediment with activated carbon for remediation. After completing her Ph.D., Dr. Lin was a science and policy fellow in the California State Legislature through the California Council on Science and Technology Fellowship Program. Dr. Lin served as a legislative aid for a Bay area Assemblymember, where she managed two bills that were signed into law and reviewed legislation on water, natural resources, and public health issues. At SFEI, Dr. Lin conducts investigations on contaminants of emerging concern and microplastics in the Bay.
