Faculty Overview

Dr. Schlautman’s teaching and research interests lie at the intersections of the broadly-defined fields of environmental engineering, environmental science, hydrology, geology, and soil science. Thus, his areas of expertise are often identified as being environmental geochemistry, hydrochemistry, and/or physicochemical treatment processes. Dr. Schlautman’s interests span both natural and engineered environmental systems, including natural waters (e.g., streams, lakes, groundwaters) and near-surface geologic environments (e.g., soils, sediments, aquifers), pollutant remediation sites, and water/wastewater treatment plants. Common goals of his research projects are to gain a better understanding of the transport, fate, reactivity, and bioavailability of beneficial and toxic materials, including point and nonpoint source pollutants, in these different environmental systems. To obtain solutions to complex environmental problems, Dr. Schlautman collaborates with other researchers having complementary skills (e.g., biological processes, advanced computer modeling). In addition to his primary academic appointment in EEES, his other Clemson University appointments include the Clemson Experiment Station, the graduate faculty for Environmental Toxicology, the Institute of Environmental Toxicology, and the Clemson Environmental Institute. Dr. Schlautman is a faculty advisor for the Clemson University student chapter of Engineers Without Borders, with projects focused primarily on developing communities in Central America and West Africa. He is a past recipient of a National Science Foundation CAREER Award.
