Lee Ann Hill, MPH, is a senior scientist at PSE Healthy Energy, where she focuses on the impacts of energy production and use on human health, the environment, and climate. Lee Ann joined PSE in 2016 to support the organization’s environmental health work on oil and gas. Her recent work includes characterizing chemical use and waste streams associated with oil and gas development across multiple states. She has examined the human health hazards and risks associated with underground gas storage, oil and gas development, and produced water reuse. Intent on sharing her findings with relevant and diverse audiences, she has written commentaries, developed data visualization tools, and authored numerous peer-reviewed and technical reports.
Lee Ann Hill received her MPH in environmental health sciences from the School of Public Health at University of California, Berkeley. She also holds a BS in environmental science from Ithaca College.
