Shane Rogers has been appointed assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering at Clarkson University. He will begin teaching this fall.
Rogers received his B.S. in civil engineering and his M.S. and Ph.D. in civil and environmental engineering from Iowa State University.
Rogers' research interests focus on the application of physical, chemical, and biological principles for exploring and modeling the fate and transport of etiological agents and anthropogenic compounds in contaminated natural and engineered systems. His recent research has involved the development of molecular techniques for the detection of pathogenic and antimicrobial-resistant microorganisms in agricultural watersheds and interfacing the use of coupled molecular microbiological techniques to study the microbial community structure and function of coal-tar contaminated aquifer sediments.
Rogers is a two-time recipient of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Superior Achievement Recognition Award, recipient of the Iowa State University Research Excellence Award and received first place in the 2000 Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors/Montgomery Watson Consulting Engineers M.S. Thesis Award competition.
Rogers has also co-written several journal articles and a book chapter. He is a member of the Tau Beta Pi engineering honor society, the American Society for Microbiology, the American Chemical Society, the Water Environment Federation, the U.S. EPA NRMRL Nanotechnology Workgroup, and the U.S. EPA, USDA Microbial Source Tracking Workgroup.
