Linda Weavers is the John C. Geupel Endowed Chair and Professor in the Department of Civil, Environmental and Geodetic Engineering at The Ohio State University. In addition, Dr. Weavers is co-Director of the Ohio Water Resources Center, the federally authorized and state-designated Water Resources Research Institute for the State of Ohio.
Dr. Weavers’ research is multi-pronged with expertise in developing water and hazardous waste treatment technologies, promoting innovation in the water industry and determining fate of emerging contaminants in water systems. Current research projects investigate ultrasound for hazardous waste remediation, ultrasonic defouling of membranes, ultrasonic control of harmful algal blooms, fate of poly- and per-fluoro alkyl substances, and developing design standards for emerging water technologies. She has received a National Science Foundation CAREER Award, a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE), and the American Association of University Women Emerging Scholar Award for her research.
In addition to her research, Dr. Weavers coordinates the capstone course for environmental engineering and teaches a study abroad course on sustainability and resilience in Italy. Dr. Weavers founded and ran for six years an engineering summer camp for middle school girls. She is past-president of the Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors (AEESP).
