Dr. Greg Lowry is the Walter J. Blenko, Sr. Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. He teaches courses in Environmental Fate and Transport of Organic Compounds in Aquatic Systems, Environmental Nanotechnology, Fundamentals of Water Quality Engineering, and Environmental Sampling and Sample Characterization.
His research interests broadly include Environmental Nanotechnology, Energy and Environment, and Environmental Remediation. Specific current research areas include characterizing nanoparticle transformations and reactivity is soils, water and plants, targeted and efficient delivery of nano-enabled fertilizers and nutrients, and contaminant fate in the subsurface.
He is an experimentalist working on a variety of fundamental and application-oriented research projects including developing and testing nano-enabled environmental technologies for sustainable agriculture and remediation, and characterizing the environmental fate processes of engineered and natural nanomaterials and organics in soils and porous media.
