Jean Moran, PhD, is an Associate Professor in the Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences at California State University East Bay, where she is actively engaged in research on isotope hydrology and contaminant hydrogeology. Her research interests include groundwater dating and groundwater contamination vulnerability, analytical methods for environmental geochemistry, chemical evolution of fluids in the Earth's crust, isotopic tracers in hydrogeology and environmental geology, artificial recharge, public health and drinking water quality, sources and transport of iodine in the environment, and sources and transport of nitrate in groundwater.

Before joining the university, Moran spent 11 years as a research scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), and maintains a strong collaboration with LLNL’s Research Group for Isotopic Tracers and Transport. She leads projects under the State of California Water Resources Control Board’s Groundwater Ambient Monitoring and Assessment program. Moran received a BA in Physics and BS in Geology from the University of Rochester, an MS in Geophysics from the University of Washington, and a PhD in Geochemistry from the University of Rochester.
