About the Speaker

Dr. Cheryl Schnitzer received her B.A. in Chemistry in 1994 from Skidmore College (Saratoga Springs, NY) with a minor in Environmental Studies. Her undergraduate research involved studying temporal and seasonal trends of ions in acid deposition in the laboratory of Dr. Judy Halstead. She earned her Ph.D. in 1999 at Tufts University (Medford, MA) where she worked in the laboratory of Dr. Mary Jane Shultz. For her graduate research, she examined an aspect of ozone depletion using a nonlinear spectroscopy called sum frequency generation. While finishing her dissertation, she worked as a Laboratory Manager and Instructor at Suffolk University.

She serves as chair of the Environmental Stewardship Council, whose members foster proactive, environmentally sustainable policies, approaches and practices on campus that are consistent with Stonehill's mission, guiding principles, and student learning goals and outcomes.

Schnitzer is the founder and CEO of Reuzzi, a data-driven mobile app to track takeout food containers using QR codes. The platform helps ensure that students and other customers use and return reusable containers to dining establishments to help cut down on waste.
