Associate Professor Suzie Reichman is the Director of the Centre for Anthropogenic Pollution Impact and Management  (CAPIM) at the University of Melbourne in Melbourne Australia. CAPIM is an interdisciplinary research centre covering soil, water, air, light and waste pollution.  CAPIM collaborates with government and industry on high quality research with usable outcomes. Suzie’s research aims to increase our knowledge of the impacts of pollution on the environment and humans.  Her research focuses on the effects of contaminants in the terrestrial environment  including soil, plants, invertebrates and human health and includes traditional pollutants (e.g. metals (arsenic, lead, etc) and hydrocarbons) as well as emerging chemicals such as per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). Currently Suzie has a focus on urban pollution and Antarctica and she has also researched mine-site rehabilitation, biosolids and land application of wastes, and phytoremediation.  The outcomes from Suzie's research have been incorporated into government guidance and policy, used by industry to make more accurate risk assessments of contaminated land and by the community to garden more safely.
