Dr. Ringenary has a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering and M.S. in Environmental Health Science from Polytechnic University. He also minored in hydrology and biochemistry, and his doctoral research centered around the development of a multi-generational bioassay toxicity test methodology for the evaluation of sediment contamination.
