Environmental Systems Ph.D. Candidate Hope Hauptman
Professional Title: 
Graduate Student in the Naughton Lab
Hope Hauptman is a Ph.D. candidate in Environmental Systems. My research applies machine learning models to 1,2,3-Trichloropropane (TCP) contamination in California's Central Valley and tests the efficiency of point-of-use filters and carbon filters derived from agricultural residues for removing TCP from drinking water. I recently published a systematic review of drinking water treatment methods for 1,2,3-Trichloropropane (TCP) in the Journal Water Sanitation and Hygiene for Development and a policy paper arguing for federal TCP limits in drinking water in the Journal of Science Policy and Governance. I previously taught high school science in the San Francisco Bay Area for over ten years and was a Science Educator in the U.S. Peace Corps in Kenya.
