Hear Prof. Jonathan (Josh) Sharp discuss how his work and research intersect with Humanitarian Engineering values! Dr. Sharp is Director of the Hydrologic Science and Engineering Program and an Associate Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Colorado School of Mines. His research focuses on the implications of biological processes on water quality and reuse in both natural and engineered settings. It is grounded in a multidisciplinary approach that combines molecular, microbiological, and geochemical tools to address fundamental and applied questions at the interface of environmental engineering, microbiology and hydrology. Dr. Sharp received his BA in Geosciences from Princeton University, MS and PhD in Environmental Engineering from UC Berkeley and conducted postdoctoral training in Environmental Microbiology at the Ecole Polytechnique (EPFL) in Lausanne, Switzerland. His research has been sponsored by agencies that include the NSF, DOE, EPA, DoD, and USGS. Josh has received teaching and research accolades that include being named a Kavli Fellow of the National Academy of Sciences, receiving the Colorado School of Mines Excellence in Research Award and a National Science Foundation CAREER young investigator award.
