Thirsty Planet: Engineering Safe Drinking Water

Faculty Office HourThis semester the Faculty Office Hour series is devoted to a single topic: potable drinking water. At URI, two initiatives, Water for the World and Water: E2S2 (Water: Engineering, Economics, Science and Society), are dedicated to its study, calling access to safe drinking water the defining issue of this century.

URI Digital Content Strategist Marybeth Reilly-McGreen will host three professors from the College of Engineering to talk about their involvement in these initiatives and their research dedicated to bringing safe drinking water to rural communities and water-stressed cities.

Join us to hear from Joseph Goodwill, Ph.D., assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering. Professor Goodwill executes research in physicochemical processes and water quality issues and teaches classes on water treatment and reuse as well as environmental analytical techniques. A licensed Professional Engineer (PE), Professor Goodwill was a project engineer for Black & Veatch before entering academia. In 2021 he received a National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development Award, which is allowing him to research a water treatment method that could be especially useful for small, rural communities. He earned Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in civil and environmental engineering from the University of Massachusetts Amherst and a B.S. in civil engineering from Lafayette College.
