Timothy Strathmann is a Professor in the Department Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Colorado School of Mines, and holds a collaborative researcher appointment at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). He is also a member of the Re-inventing the Nation’s Urban Water Infrastructure (ReNUWIt) Engineering Research Center. His research focuses on the development of innovative technologies for remediation and destruction of perfluoro- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs), and the advancement of hydrothermal processes for valorizing waste streams by producing fuels, fertilizers and other valuable products from these resources. Dr. Strathmann is the recipient of a National Science Foundation CAREER Award, and his research has been sponsored by DoD-SERDP, AFCEC, NSF, USDA, and DOE. Prof. Strathmann is also currently serving as an Associate Editor for Environmental Science & Technology. His formal training includes a PhD in environmental engineering from Johns Hopkins, BS and MS degrees from Purdue, and postdoctoral training at Princeton University.
