Jackson Webster

Assistant Professor of Civil Engineering

Research Interests 

Dr. Webster's research is in the areas of water quality and contaminant fate and transport. Most of his work focuses on natural systems and characterizing fundamental processes that govern contaminant behavior. His areas of expertise are:

  • Geochemical processes governing water quality and contaminant transport
  • Effects of wildfire on water quality and drinking water treatment
  • Environmental sample collection and laboratory analysis of inorganic and organic contaminants
  • Engineering design: water and wastewater treatment processes, pumping, pipelines, open channels, surface drainage, well installation
