Ryan M Holzem
Assistant Professor, Environmental Engineering Technology Program, University of Wisconsin Green Bay (UWGB), United States.
Ryan M. Holzem is currently an assistant professor in the new Environmental Engineering Technology Program at the University of Wisconsin ? Green Bay (UWGB). Ryan completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Wisconsin ? Platteville and earned a Bachelor?s of Science in Civil Engineering with emphases in transportation and environmental engineering. He then went on to UW ? Madison to earn his Masters of Science degree in Environmental Engineering. Following graduation from UW-Madison, Ryan went to work for CH2M as an environmental engineer. There he worked on stormwater and drinking water projects. Ryan then returned to academia and earned his Ph.D. from Duke University in Environmental Engineering. At Duke, Ryan examined emerging contaminants found in human biosolids on soil microorganisms following the land application of the biosolids. After Duke, Ryan worked as an Environmental Engineer at Donohue and Associates out of Sheboygan, WI for a year prior to joining UWGB in 2015.
Research interests include biological, chemical, and physical processes of drinking water and wastewater treatment and remediation; process and technologies associated with nutrient and energy recovery, such as anaerobic digestion, biosolids management and disposal, and phosphorus, nitrogen, and potassium recovery; impact and potential removal methods of emerging chemicals of concern within natural and engineered systems.
