Professor Stefan Grimberg Receives Graham Faculty Research Award

Stefan J. Grimberg of Potsdam, professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Clarkson University, was awarded the John W. Graham Jr. Faculty Research Award during the 108th Commencement Ceremony on May 13.

Grimberg's research interest is in the development of biological water and wastewater treatment processes and in understanding the fate of the pollutants in environmental systems. Most recently, his research has been centered on quantifying the effect of microorganisms on the transport of sparingly water-soluble compounds in contaminated soil. His research is funded through grants from the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation.

He has also initiated research that may lead to the development of membrane assisted biological treatment processes suitable for treating high-strength industrial wastewater.

Grimberg's teaching interests include introductory engineering design classes and graduate level classes on biological treatment process engineering and hazardous waste treatment engineering. He has advised 62 undergraduate students and 10 graduate students as well as the nationally recognized, award-winning undergraduate environmental restoration team.

Grimberg has been an assistant professor in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering since 1996. Earlier this month, he was granted tenure and promoted to associate professor. In 1999, Grimberg was named Clarkson's Outstanding New Teacher.
