Mr. Kearney earned his B.S. from the University of Minnesota and MS from the University of Texas at Austin in Environmental Engineering. While at UT, Mr. Kearney conducted research for a Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) project investigating natural attenuation reactions of chlorinated solvents in clay. Through this project, he gained extensive knowledge on the mechanisms of formation and reaction of reactive minerals with contaminants in the subsurface. Additionally, Kade was responsible for using and maintaining analytical gas and liquid chromatography equipment, assessing the effectiveness of an in-situ freezing soil coring method to capture soil gasses, and developing soil characterization techniques in the lab.
