Ken Schiff

Kenneth Schiff is SCCWRP's Deputy Director and is responsible for helping manage day-to-day operations, supervising and mentoring senior level staff, and developing the long-term vision of the research agency. He received his B.S. in biology from San Diego State University in 1984 and his M.S. in biology from California State University, Long Beach in 1988. Schiff joined SCCWRP in August 1995. His research focus cuts across several scientific disciplines and agency departments to assess both environmental and human health risk. The outcome of his research has been widely used in environmental management actions including remediation prioritization and implementation, assessment tool development, testing new technology, and regulatory responses such as NPDES permit conditions, developing TMDLs, and setting water quality standards.
