Speakers

David L. Sedlak, PhD

Editor-in-Chief, of Environmental Science & Technology and Environmental Science & Technology Letters

Dr. Sedlak obtained a B.S. in environmental science from Cornell University and a PhD in Water Chemistry from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Prior to his appointment at UC Berkeley in 1994, he was a postdoctoral research at the Swiss Federal Institute for Aquatic Science and Technology (Eawag). He is currently the Plato Malozemoff Chair in Mineral Engineering in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at UC Berkeley. Dr. Sedlak’s research focuses on the fate of trace organic contaminants in the urban water cycle. Within this area, he has investigated advanced treatment systems employed in potable water reuse and managed natural systems, such as constructed wetlands and stormwater harvesting systems. He also has developed new approaches for characterizing and remediating organic contaminants in groundwater and soil.

Bruce E. Logan, PhD

Deputy Editor, Environmental Science & Technology Letters

Dr. Logan earned his B.S. and M.S. in Chemical Engineering and Environmental Engineering respectively at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and his Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering at University of California, Berkeley. He started his career as an Assistant Professor at University of Arizona, and became Associate Professor, then Professor before moving to The Pennsylvania State University. Dr. Logan is currently an Evan Pugh Professor and the Stan and Flora Kappe Professor of Environmental Engineering in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at The Pennsylvania State University. Dr. Logan also holds an investigator position with King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Saudi Arabia, is the Frangui International Chair at Ghent University in Belgium (2013), and a visiting professor at Newcastle University (UK), Tsinghua University, Harbin Institute of Technology, and Dalian University of Technology (China). Dr. Logan’s research is currently focused on developing new microbial electrochemical technologies (METs) for achieving a water infrastructure that is energy sustainable. He and collaborators invented several key methodologies including for sustainable hydrogen production using microbial electrolysis cells, for water desalination (microbial desalination cells) that does not require electrical energy from the grid or high pressures, for improved (by several orders of magnitude) direct bioelectricity generated in microbial fuel cells, and reactors that harness salinity gradient energy in microbial reverse electrodialysis cells.
