Background

Anderson Ellis is a current PhD student in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Colorado School of Mines. His specialization is in Environmental and Water Engineering, with a particular focus on subsurface contaminant remediation. Anderson received his undergraduate degree from Yale University in Political Science, with a coursework emphasis on environmental law and energy policy.  In the Strathmann Group, Anderson’s research centers on the treatment of emerging contaminants, particularly per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs). His current research project aims to remove these substances from groundwater supplies through application of ion exchange processes using a combination of ionic and non-ionic resins. He is also leading group efforts to apply life cycle assessment (LCA) methods to quantify the sustainability of different treatment options for PFASs. Outside the lab, Anderson is an avid fly fisherman, cyclist, and soccer fan.
