Curriculum Vitae

Education

• Ph.D., Environmental Engineering, Pennsylvania State University
• M.S., Environmental Engineering, Pennsylvania State University
• B.S. Civil and Environmental Engineering, Virginia Military Institute

Research and Scholarship

Dr. Fox’s research focuses on preventing pollution from industrial activities and advancing water treatment technologies.  Ongoing projects investigate the modification and use of biomaterials to prevent or treat air pollution; industrial waste reclamation process technologies for value-added resources; and developing materials with novel properties for water treatment applications. 

Before joining Lehigh’s faculty, Dr. Fox served as a research assistant at Penn State University, and previously served as the Vice President for Education and Defense at the Virginia Military Institute Honor Court.  He has published articles in journals such as Environmental Science and Technology and Transactions of the American Foundry Society, and he has presented his work at conferences across the U.S.

Dr. Fox is a member of the American Foundry Society Pollution Prevention Committee and a member of the engineering honor society Tau Beta Pi.

Teaching and Service

At the undergraduate level, Dr. Fox teaches courses in Fundamentals of Air Pollution, Environmental Water Chemistry, and Environmental Engineering Design. His Hazardous Waste Treatment and Management class is offered at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
