Project Scientist, Newfields

MEM/MF '10

Mr. DiLuzio is a Project Scientist at NewFields, a boutique environmental consulting firm headquartered in Atlanta, Ga.  At NewFields, DiLuzio works on numerous projects for a wide variety of clients including environmental litigation, remediation, environmental data analysis and management, liability assessment, and cost allocation amongst responsible parties at Superfund sites.  His work spans the country and the world, with current projects in Georgia, Oklahoma, Illinois, West Virginia, Puerto Rico, and the UK.

DiLuzio uses 2D and 3D GIS to conduct innovative analyses on environmental data as well as clearly and effectively communicate complex environmental information.  His GIS work has resulted in a number of favorable settlements for clients in litigation, and has brought numerous contaminated sites to closure through remediation.

DiLuzio is also highly active in the local non-profit community.  In 2012, he co-authored the Patterns of Pollution report with GreenLaw, a first of its kind report using publically available GIS data to identify possible communities with possible enviromental justice issues in the metro Atlanta area.  He serves on the board of the Chattahoochee Nature Center, and also serves on a committee for Trees Atlanta.  In addition to his local non-profit work, DiLuzio is highly involved as a volunteer for both Davidson College and the Nicholas School.

"While at the Nicholas School, I had the opportunity to take a wide variety of classes over several different topic areas, including two environmental law courses at the law school. This wide variety of coursework, paired with my certificate in GIS, has proved to be an extremely valuable combination in the work I do today. I know, without a doubt, that I would not be in the position I am today without the education and training I received at the Nicholas School."
