Educational Background

PhD, Civil Engineering, Washington State University, 1992
MS, Environmental Engineering, Washington State University, 1989
BS, Environmental Engineering, Montana Tech, 1982

Teaching Interests

At USU Dr. Martin teaches classes related to air quality and air pollution control. Dr. Martin typically teaches CEE 5860 Air Quality Management in the fall, and depending on student requirements has also taught CEE 5750 (Air Pollutant Measurements - every other year), and CEE 6630 (Process Dynamics in Environmental Engineering Systems). He has also organized CEE 6800 (Water & Env. Seminar) for the 2019 and 2020 Spring Semesters and has coordinated CEE 6670 (Env. Process Lab) for the Spring 2020 Semester. Additionally Dr. Martin has taught special studies classes dealing with effective teaching, CEE 6830 (Atmospheric Chemistry), atmospheric pollutant modeling, and senior design teams.

Research Interests

Dr. Martin has led or collaborated on air pollutant research which has included, among other studies, investigations in to the composition, sources, and photochemical formation of PM2.5, wintertime ozone formation in Utah’s oil and gas regions, the atmospheric behavior and sources of gas-phase ammonia, on-road vehicular emissions, air pollutant emissions from agricultural crop and animal production facilities, regional transport of air pollutants over the Colorado Plateau, and biogenic emissions of various hydrocarbons.
