Karlin is an environmental engineer, geochemist, and geologist. She is focused on building OHM Advisors’ Water Quality Initiative that couples tools capable of continuously monitoring water quality in real-time, with internet communication and online data analytics platforms and models. Karlin is building a team that explores rapidly evolving monitoring tools, evaluates their potential and limitations and develops strategic implementations. These new tools track water quality degradation to its source, document the influence of rain events as they happen and create spatial maps that visually communicate water quality. These tools empower communities to prioritize infrastructure upgrades and focus on those that return the highest water quality improvements for their investment.
