Edward Kolodziej will begin his joint associate professorship this fall with the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering and UW Tacoma's Center for Urban Water. He was recently an associate professor of civil and environmental engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno.

His research investigates the transport, reactions and ecological implications of human-derived pollutants in natural and engineered aquatic systems, particularly their adverse impacts on aquatic organisms and humans. In addition to studying non-point source pollution such as storm water and agricultural runoff, he investigates how engineered treatment systems work and optimizes their performance for contaminant removal.
