Dr. Craig Adams, the John and Susan Mathes Missouri Distinguished Professor of Environmental Engineering at the University of Missouri-Rolla, has been elected a fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).
ASCE awards fellow status to professional civil engineers “who have made significant technical or professional contributions to the profession and who have demonstrated notable achievement” in engineering. An expert in drinking water treatment, wastewater treatment and environmental chemistry, Adams has found ways to remove antibiotic drugs, estrogens, endocrine disrupting chemicals, and disinfection byproducts using traditional and innovative water treatment methods.
Adams earned a bachelor of science degree in chemical engineering, and master’s and doctoral degrees in environmental health engineering from the University of Kansas in 1983, 1998 and 1991, respectively. He joined the UMR faculty in 1995 after serving on the faculty at Clemson University.
