Dr. Jorge Gardea-Torresdey is the Dudley Professor of Environmental Science & Engineering and Professor of Chemistry at The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP). He is currently the Chair of the Department Chemistry at UTEP. He received his Ph.D. from New Mexico State University in 1988.

The research interests of Dr. Gardea include: applications of spectroscopy techniques in environmental chemistry; phytoremediation, novel methods for the bioproduction of nanoparticles, development of analytical methods to detect nanomaterials, study of the fate of nanoparticles in the environment, and applications of nanotechnology to clean water among others. His current research is funded by the US NIH, DOE, EPA, USDA, and the NSF. He is a co-investigator in the NSF/EPA funded “Center for Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology” (UCCEIN). He is also a co-investigator in the recently funded NSF Engineering Research Center Nanotechnology Enabled Water Treatment Systems (NEWT).

Dr. Gardea-Torresdey has authored over 420 publications and issued 5 US patents for environmental remediation. Dr. Gardea has graduated 33 Ph.D. Students (26 in Environmental Science and Engineering, 6 in Chemistry and 1 in Material Sciences), and 29 students have received their M.Sc. degrees under his mentorship. Also he has mentored more than 35 undergraduate students in research.

The scientific contributions of Dr. Gardea have allowed him to receive many honors throughout his professional life. Recently, he received the first ever Graduate Mentor Award in UTEP history (2016.) His research achievements are highlighted in the Lawrence Hall of Science of the University of California Berkeley. He received the 2009 SACNAS Distinguished Scientist of the Year Award and he was awarded the 2012 Piper Professor Award, which is the most prestigious honor conferred to a Professor in the State of Texas.

Dr. Gardea’s career has been highlighted by the most important Journals in Science and Engineering, including the October 28, 2009 issue of Environmental Science & Technology (ES&T) and the December 3, 2009 Issue of Nature. He was Editor of the Journal of Hazardous Materials from 2007 to 2010 and in January 1, 2011, he was appointed Associate Editor of ES&T, which is ranked # 1 in the world in the fields of Environmental Sciences and Environmental Engineering.
