Dr. Gobeil (formerly Folcik) is a toxicologist with an interdisciplinary background in risk assessment, water quality, regulatory compliance, and environmental and ecotoxicology. She performs evaluations and assessments including environmental causal and impact analyses, evaluation of substances, mixtures, formulated products' effects on human and environmental health, product stewardship program development, and advisory/consultation.

Dr. Gobeil integrates her expertise in biology, ecology, toxicology, and human health to assess risk and injury, support regulatory compliance, evaluate sustainability objectives, and support decision making. She has managed product and facility due diligence assessments to assist clients with designing and evaluating their products to meet new and existing regulations. She has advised on the development of product stewardship programs specifically related to ingredient disclosure requirements for multiple product categories, as well as developed testing programs for assessing product composition.

In addition to her work in consumer products, Dr. Gobeil has performed detailed technical assessments of risk and injuries to natural resources. She has experience developing toxicity reference values for aquatic life and wildlife as well as utilizing site-specific data to assess risk of various chemical and environmental stressors. This work has been done to support both site remediation projects and litigation matters.

Dr. Gobeil's academic background and areas of focus included the development of new applications for high energy electron beam irradiation for the removal of cyanobacteria and their associated toxins from drinking water. In this work, she studied the chemical and biological effects of ionizing radiation, the feasibility of implementing such technologies into existing water treatment infrastructure, as well as using irradiation in more traditional applications. In addition to her work assessing cyanotoxins, she has experience investigating the effects of mixtures of agricultural chemicals on freshwater phytoplankton using standard laboratory toxicity tests. She also assessed the degradation of PFAS substances in water, sediments, and sludges with electron beam technology.
