David E. Hogan, PhD

Assistant Research Professor, Environmental Science

David E. Hogan, PhD, is an Assistant Research Professor in the Department of Environmental Science. He is an interdisciplinary environmental scientist whose primary research focus is developing remediation technologies for biosurfactants and bio-inspired synthetic surfactants. Dr. Hogan is particularly interested in remediating mining impacted aqueous solutions for the protection of environmental and human health. The aim of his research is to clean metalliferous waters to enable beneficial water reuse while recovering metal constituents for either responsible disposal or the generation of saleable products. Dr. Hogan strives to develop industry partnerships through which he can innovate technologies to both address environmental issues from legacy mining and reduce the environmental impact of modern mining practices.
