Kevin Orner

Maurice and JoAnn Wadsworth Faculty Fellow and Assistant Professor - Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering

Kevin Orner's research focuses on improving human and environmental health locally and globally through the safe and sustainable recovery of resources such as nutrients, energy and water from concentrated waste streams. His research aims to develop, demonstrate and assess innovative technologies for safe, contextually sensitive resource recovery. Orner believes that integrating social context, health risk, and policy into wastewater management at the building, neighborhood and city scales will allow for improvement. He utilizes data science to leverage resource recovery and climate change mitigation. Orner's teaching interests are focused on environmental engineering, water and wastewater treatment and sustainable development engineering.
