About Us

Mandar Dewoolkar (PE), Assistant Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering. Dr. Dewoolkar has been at UVM since Fall 2003 and has worked on incorporating modules on laboratory and computational research into undergraduate engineering education. His research focuses on applying experimental and analytical methods to solve complex practical geoengineering problems. His Bachelor's and Master's degrees are from Mumbai, India and his Ph.D. is from the University of Colorado at Boulder, all in Civil Engineering.

Nancy J. Hayden (PE),  Associate Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering. Dr. Hayden has been at UVM since 1991 and has been working on innovative educational opportunities for students in  engineering for over eighteen years. She is particularly interested in incorporating sustainability, systems thinking, and service learning into engineering curricula. She has a Ph.D. and M.S. in Environmental  Engineering from Michigan State University with a research focus on alternative sustainable water and waste systems. She has a B.S. in Forest Biology from SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry atSyracuse, and a B.A. in studio art and English from UVM.

Maureen Neumann, Assistant Professor, Department of Education, University of Vermont. Dr. Neumann has been at UVM since 2001 and has examined teacher leadership and teacher change in mathematics curricular reform. She is also interested in helping all teachers become better instructors of mathematics. She received a MS in Mathematics from the University of Massachusetts-Lowell where she studied Dynamical Systems. She also received a MS in Applied Mathematics from the University of Washington-Seattle where she studied Geophysical Fluid Flows. She received her Ph.D. in Mathematics Education from the University of Washington at Seattle.

Donna M. Rizzo, Assistant Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering. Dr. Rizzo joined UVM in the fall of 2002. Her research focuses on geostatistics, optimization and computational techniques, including artificial neural networks (ANNs), to find solutions to subsurface environmental optimization problems. She has a B.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of Connecticut, an M.S. in Art and Archeology from the University of Florence, Italy, and PhD in Civil Engineering from the University of Vermont.

Adel W. Sadek is an Associate Professor in Civil and Environmental Engineering at UVM with a secondary appointment in the Department of Computer Science. His teaching and research interests are in the areas of Transportation Systems Modeling and Simulation, Intelligent Transportation Systems, and Computational Intelligence Applications in Transportation. He is the recipient of the 1998 Milton Pikarsky Award for the best dissertation in the field of Transportation Science and Technology, and an NSF CAREER award. He has a Ph.D. degree in Transportation Engineering from the University of Virginia.
