Dr. Holly T. Frederick

Assistant Professor

Enviro Engineering and Earth Scienc


I am an environmental engineer focused on aqueous systems. I like to encourage students to ‘think outside of the box’ and work to develop different approaches to solving some of our typical environmental challenges. Field work is always an important part of the courses I teach. I am also the advisor of the Student Chapter of the National Society for Professional Engineers which provides students with a chance to meet and learn from practicing professional engineers.

  • I am interested in water systems, soil systems and water and wastewater treatment systems. Chemical reactions in environmental systems are at the core of my research interests. I am interested in emerging organic chemicals and how they are transported through the environment and through our treatment systems in an effort to more efficiently remove these chemicals.
