Dr. LeBoeuf's research group focuses on the fate and transport of contaminants in the environment, including engineered nanomaterials within groundwater, soil, and sediment systems. Additionally, his work focuses on application of advanced computational methods for optimization of hydropower production constrained by water flow and quality requirements and development of spill management information systems for inland waterways. He is Associate Professor and Associate Chair of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Vanderbilt University. Overall areas of research interest include: environmental engineering, water resources engineering, water and environmental security, advanced characterization of natural organic matter, systems optimization and management, and contaminant fate and transport applied to groundwater, soil, and sediment systems. Dr. LeBoeuf has participated in or led external technical reviews on nuclear waste remediation for the Department of Energy including a range of technology approaches to accelerate cleanup of contaminated areas in vicinity of the Columbia River at Hanford, Washington He also serves as the Director of Undergraduate Studies for Vanderbilt School of Engineering Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. For more information visit: www.cee.vanderbilt.edu He is also a member of the Vanderbilt Institute for Energy and Environment (VIEE). www.vanderbilt.edu/viee The Vanderbilt Institute for Energy and the Environment (VIEE) engages in research and education that directly link the social and behavioral sciences, physical sciences, engineering, law and policy, and that bear on energy and environmental decision making by individuals and by public and private institutions. Specifically, VIEE research elucidates the relationships among individual, institutional, and societal choices for energy production and use, and the impacts and benefits of these choices on the environment and health through links with climate, water quality, economics, social psychology, and natural resources. A key aim of VIEE is to create a strong multi-disciplinary undergraduate and graduate research and education program, which will evolve into a center of national and international leadership in this field.
