Geosyntec Welcomes Angela Liang, Ph.D., P.E.

Dr. Angela Liang, P.E., joins Geosyntec with over 10 years of experience in the environmental remediation field. She is well versed in various types of soil and groundwater remediation and wastewater/groundwater treatment technologies, including in-situ thermal remediation, in-situ enhanced bioremediation, monitored natural attenuation, and in-situ chemical oxidation.

Angela earned her B.S. in power mechanical engineering from National Tsing-Hua University in Taiwan. She obtained her M.S. and Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from the University of California at Berkeley. As a graduate student researcher, she worked in the Berkeley Environmental Restoration Center, and assisted in the design and operation of the in-situ Steam Enhanced Extraction pilot study in the Alameda Naval Air Station in California.

After earning her Ph.D., Angela worked at a small specialized water resources consulting practice in Santa Barbara, Ca., serving as a thermal engineer for large-scale steam enhanced extraction/dynamic underground stripping projects. Later, she joined a large multinational consulting firm, where she worked on a wide range of projects, including co-authoring the in-situ thermal remediation engineering manual for the Army Corps of Engineers. In addition, Angela has worked on recovering over 1,700 gallons of gasoline from a pipeline spill with a soil vapor extraction system designed and operated within six weeks of the release; injected over 10,000 pounds of oxygen release compounds as part of a Bay Area site remediation; and pumped and transferred over 10 million gallons of stormwater from three Waste Management Units at a refinery during the 2005-06 rainy season.

Angela was attracted to Geosyntec by our strong technical reputation and the relaxed and friendly atmosphere in the Oakland, Ca., office. She is already very impressed with the Groundwater Action Group network and looks forward to contributing to its continued success.
