Dr. Julie LaBar received her
BS, MS, and PhD in environmental science from the University of Oklahoma. She
began her career in research and education as an undergraduate, working in both
rural and urban NSF-funded K-12 programs, with an emphasis on teaching STEM
subjects from a real-world and practical perspective.
Dr. LaBar’s graduate research focused
on generation of trace metals contamination due to mining waste leachate and
treatment of mine drainage using vertical flow bioreactors. Her doctoral research
specifically looked at the impact of ionic strength on the bioavailability and
stability of trace metal removal products in the bioreactors. Her current research
and teaching focus on understanding and communicating the impacts of resource
extraction on the surrounding environment and communities.
In her role as a postdoctoral
fellow, Dr. LaBar has taught laboratory and field measurements courses. In
addition, she has provided technical assistance to environmental consultants
and local watershed groups, with the goal of incorporating the projects into
the classroom and providing students with real problems to solve and real work
