Dominic L. Boccelli

Education and Experience

An Associate Professor at the University of Cincinnati since Spring 2007, Dr. Boccelli earned B.S. degrees in chemistry and environmental engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1993 and 1994, respectively. He completed his M.S. in environmental engnieering from the University of Cincinnati in 1999, and his Ph.D. in environmental engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in 2003.

Dr. Boccelli was a chemist and laboratory coordinator for National Refrigerants Inc. (1994-1995) before entering graduate school. Prior to joining the University, he was an ORISE Postdoctoral Research Particiant at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (2003-2005), and an Environmental Engineer at the EPA's National Homeland Security Research Center (2005-2007).

Research Interests

Dr. Boccelli's primary research interests are in the areas of Water Resources, Water Quality, and Environmental Systems Analysis. His research activities are expected to focus on developing decision support tools based on fundamental principles of environmental engineering and science to assist engineers, managers, and policy makers in making technology, design, and regulatory decisions. More explicitly, these tools will incorporate various mathematical modeling and optimization techniques to attain the desired objectives. Additionally, given his academic and research experience, his research will include laboratory and field experiments, where appropriate, to develop an improved understanding of the processes used in the decision making process. This two-pronged research philosophy has arisen from his research and experience in both Environmental Engineering and Chemistry.

  • We would like to congratulate Jinduan Chen on completing his PhD, and welcome Masud Rana back to the group and Paulo Oliveira into the group as they start their PhDs.
