Doug Haith is an Emeritus Professor in the Department of Biological and Environmental Engineering. His research in water resources and environmental engineering is based on mathematical modeling related to nonpoint source pollution.
Professor Haith's research is in the development and application of mathematical models to aid in the management of environmental pollution. Models are tested with field data and implemented in software packages that are made available to practicing engineers and other environmental professionals.
Professor Haith is currently teaching two upper-level courses: BEE 4750 Environmental Systems Analysis and BEE 4760 Solid Waste Engineering.
