Eugene J. LeBoeuf, associate professor of civil and environmental engineering, has been elected a Fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). This is the second highest honor given by the ASCE.

Gene LeBoeuf

LeBoeuf’s research focuses on the fate and transport of contaminants in the environment, including engineered nanomaterials within groundwater, soil, sediment systems. Additional work focuses on application of advanced computational methods for optimization of hydropower production constrained by water flow and quality requirements and development of spill management information systems for inland waterways.

He has participated in or led external technical reviews on nuclear waste remediation for the Department of Energy including a range of technology approaches to accelerate cleanup of contaminated areas in vicinity of the Columbia River at Hanford, Washington

LeBoeuf also serves as a Colonel in the U.S. Army Reserve where he currently serves as the Military Chief, Emergency Operations Center, for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Pacific Ocean Division.

LeBoeuf received a B.S. with high honors in civil engineering from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, a M.S. in industrial engineering and management science from Northwestern University, a M.S. in civil engineering from Stanford University, and  Ph.D. in environmental engineering from the University of Michigan.

Fellows are selected based on their contributions to society, the industry and the future of civil engineering. Fellow status must be attained by professional accomplishments via application and election by the Membership Application Review Committee of ASCE. This prestigious honor is held by fewer than 5 percent of ASCE members.
