Seth H. Frisbie has more than 35 years of experience in drinking water and public health. He started his career as a licensed plumbing apprentice in 1977. He earned his Bachelor of Science from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in 1986, his Master of Science from Cornell University in 1989, and his doctorate from Cornell University in 1992.

After graduation, Frisbie worked in engineering until 1998, when he entered academia. He has worked on drinking water and public health in Bangladesh, Canada, India, the Cayman Islands, Myanmar, Nepal and the United States. His team discovered that more than 50 million Bangladeshis are drinking water with unsafe concentrations of arsenic, manganese, uranium, nickel or chromium. His team also developed a test that can prevent over 120,000 cancer deaths in Bangladesh. He is now an associate professor in Norwich University’s Chemistry and Biochemistry Department.
