    Director of Assessment and Accreditation, Sid and Reva Dewberry Department of Civil, Environmental, and Infrastructure Engineering, College of Engineering and Computing

    David Binning is a water resources engineer with over 40 years practice in the design, construction, operation and management of public water and wastewater systems.
  • Assistant Professor
    Sid and Reva Dewberry Department of Civil, Environmental, and Infrastructure Engineering
    College of Engineering and Computing

    Doaa Bondok is an assistant professor of structural engineering in the Sid and Reva Dewberry Department of Civil, Environmental, and Infrastructure Engineering. Bondok co-instructs the senior design projects and serves as the faculty advisor to Mason's ASCE student chapter, the Steel Bridge team. and the Concrete Canoe team. Bondok was nominated for the Career Connection Faculty Award in 2019, and she is a proud member of Mason's Career Influencer Network.

    Assistant Professor, Sid and Reva Dewberry Department of Civil, Environmental, and Infrastructure Engineering, College of Engineering and Computing

    Kirin Emlet Furst (she/they) joined the Volgenau School as an assistant professor in 2020 and is a member of the Environmental and Water Resources Engineering group. The goal of her research is to identify engineering and policy strategies to mitigate health risks posed by contaminant mixtures in drinking water. To achieve this goal, the Furst lab takes an interdisciplinary approach spanning environmental chemistry, water quality engineering, human exposure analysis, and data science.

    Assistant Professor, Sid and Reva Dewberry Department of Civil, Environmental, and Infrastructure Engineering, College of Engineering and Computing

    Lucas Henneman’s research focuses on air pollution and health. He is most interested in telling success stories—for example, about how environmental regulations have improved our air quality and health—and the opportunities to create more success stories by identifying air pollution sources that make people sick. His day-to-day research leverages large datasets and computer models to track pollution after it’s emitted to where it is breathed in by people like us.

    Assistant Professor, Sid and Reva Dewberry Department of Civil, Environmental, and Infrastructure Engineering, College of Engineering and Computing

    Wenying Ji is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Infrastructure Engineering.
  • Associate Chair, Director of CEIE Graduate Program Sid and Reva Dewberry Department of Civil, Environmental, and Infrastructure Engineering College of Engineering and Computing

    Laura Kosoglu earned her PhD from Virginia Tech, where she studied factors that influence clay behavior for time-dependent processes such as secondary compression, shear deformation, and fault dynamics behavior as a National Science Foundation Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) Doctoral Fellow, and Marion Via Doctoral Fellow. Her work resulted in the development of a novel experimental method to measure the coefficient of friction between clay particles at the micro-scale using an Atomic Force Microscope.
  • This is a photo of David Lattanzi

    Associate Professor, Sid and Reva Dewberry Department of Civil, Environmental, and Infrastructure Engineering, College of Engineering and Computing

    David Lattanzi is a licensed bridge engineer who puts his professional experience to work in the development of the next generation of infrastructure inspection technologies.
  • Associate Professor, Sid and Reva Dewberry Department of Civil, Environmental, and Infrastructure Engineering, College of Engineering and Computing

    Viviana Maggioni’s research interests lie at the intersection of hydrometeorology and remote sensing. Her research activities span from the local scale, by developing advanced environmental monitoring systems at the Mason campus, to the global scale, combining water resources engineering with hydrometeorology and remote sensing to evaluate conditions in remote regions, where ground truthing is impossible, but where environmental and health consequences can be devastating.
