John Gulliver is a Professor of Civil, Environmental and Geo- Engineering at the University of Minnesota, performing his research at the St. Anthony Falls Laboratory. His major research interests are mass transport in environmental systems and stormwater pollution prevention. Current research involves the development of technology to treat stormwater runoff, an assessment of stormwater infiltration practices, the prediction of runoff from small, urban watersheds and remediation of internal phosphorus loading in stormwater ponds.

Much of Dr. Gulliver’s research, in conjunction with other faculty, involves the development of new technology for the treatment of road runoff and assessment of field performance of stormwater treatment practices, including the SAFL Baffle, the Iron-Enhanced Sand Filter, and the MPD Infiltrometer.  He is a co-author of the book, Optimizing Stormwater Treatment Practices: A Handbook of Assessment and Maintenance, published by Springer.

Prof. Peter Jaffé joined the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineeing at Princeton University in 1985, and has three concurrent appointments with the Princeton Environmental Institute, the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment and the Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials. He served as chair of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering from 1999 to 2005 and was director of graduate studies in the same department from 2009 to 2012.

His research interests relate to the physical, chemical, and biological processes that govern the transport and transformation of pollutants in the environment and their application toward the remediation of contaminated systems. Areas of current emphasis include: laboratory and field experiments, as well as mathematical simulations of biogeochemical processes in porous media, such as: (1) understanding the mechanism as well as environmental distribution of the Feammox process (ammonium oxidation under iron reducing conditions); (2) Applications of the Feammox process for ammonium removal in engineered systems and for the cometabolical degradation of recalcitrant organics such as PFAS; (2) biogeochemically mediated dynamics of trace metals, metalloids, and radioisotopes in sediments, wetland soils, and groundwater; (4) nitrogen processing in urban settings coupled to urban hydrology; and (5) design of novel biological waste treatment processes.

Professor Jaffé holds a bachelor’s of science in chemical engineering from Universidad Simón Bolívar in Caracas, Venezuela, and a master’s and doctorate in environmental and water resources engineering from Vanderbilt University.
