Deborah Sills

My name is Deborah Sills, and I'm an Associate Professor in the Civil & Environmental Engineering Department at Bucknell University. I am a teacher scholar at a primarily undergraduate institution (PUI) with interests in community engaged research, sustainability, and humanisitic engineering. My research focuses on sustainable resource recovery from ogranic materials, such as wastewater, animal, manure, plastic, and marine microalgae. We use laboratory studies and modeling techniques—such as life cycle assessment—to develop and improve the environmental performance of waste to resource processes and multi-product biorefineries.
