Dr. Michael Dodd is an Associate Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Washington. He received his B.S. in Civil Engineering (2001) and his M.S. in Environmental Engineering (2003) from the Georgia Institute of Technology. He received his Ph.D. in Environmental Sciences from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (2008), and undertook a postdoctoral fellowship in the Environmental Engineering Program of Yale University (2008-2009) prior to starting at the UW. His research interests center on characterizing homogeneous and heterogeneous redox reactions in engineered and natural aquatic systems, particularly with regard to their application in optimizing pollutant and pathogen elimination during water and wastewater treatment.
