Dr. Jeffrey Cunningham
Dr. Jeffrey Cunningham is an Associate Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of South Florida (USF). Dr Cunningham's research and teaching interests are related to the fate, transport, and remediation of contaminants in the environment.
His current students are working on projects related to the clean-up of soil contaminated by hazardous chemicals, the fate of trace organic contaminants during reclamation of treated municipal wastewater, and the storage of carbon dioxide in deep saline aquifers as a method of mitigating global climate change. Several previous research projects focused on the transport and biodegradation of hazardous chemicals in groundwater. Dr. Cunningham regularly teaches an introductory Environmental Engineering class for undergraduate Civil Engineering students, as well as graduate classes on physical and chemical processes in natural and engineered environmental systems. Dr. Cunningham earned his BS degree in Chemical Engineering from Rice University, his MS degree in Civil Engineering from Stanford University, and his PhD in Civil & Environmental Engineering from Stanford University. He has authored over a dozen papers in peer-reviewed scientific journals.
When not at work, he enjoys spending time with his family and watching baseball. Go Red Sox!
