Angela S. Lindner
Associate Provost of Undergraduate Affairs and Associate Professor
Department of Environmental Engineering Sciences
- Faculty, Department of Environmental Engineering Sciences
Ph.D., 1998, University of Michigan
Angela S. Lindner received a B.S. degree in chemistry from the College of Charleston in South Carolina in 1983 and an M.S. degree in chemical engineering from Texas A&M University in 1987. Her Master’s thesis work, funded by the Texas Transportation Institute, involved use of phosphogypsum, a byproduct of phosphoric acid production, in road construction, and this work began her environmentally focused career path. She served as a chemical engineer at the Office of Mobile Sources of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in Ann Arbor, Michigan from 1987-1989 and as a senior project leader in International Regulations at General Motors Corporation in Warren, Michigan from 1989-1991. She subsequently pursued her Ph.D. in Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Michigan from 1991-1998 under the mentorship of Dr. Peter Adriaens and Dr. Jeremy Semrau, and her dissertation topic focused on bioremediation and oxidation of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) by methane-oxidizing bacteria.
Dr. Lindner began her academic career at the University of Florida in 1998 in the Department of Environmental Engineering Sciences. Since 1998, she has taught undergraduate- and graduate-level courses in green engineering and sustainability, life cycle assessment, environmental organic chemistry, and groundwater restoration, and bioremediation. Her students are currently pursuing research projects in bioremediation and sustainable engineering, both areas in which she is active internationally. She currently serves as the Chair of the Advisory Committee of the Center for Sustainable Engineering, a consortium composed of Carnegie Mellon University, Arizona State University, and University of Texas and is the founding and current faculty advisor of Engineers Without Borders-UF. She assumed the role of Associate Dean of Student Affairs in the College of Engineering at the University of Florida in January 2008 and continues to serve the College’s approximately 5000 undergraduate students in this capacity.
