Jon Hathaway

Assistant Professor


Hathaway received his PhD from North Carolina State University in 2010, where he studied the fate, transport, and removal of indicator bacteria in urban stormwater runoff. After a brief research fellowship at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, and nearly two and half years at one of the nation's leading ecological design and consulting firms, Hathaway joined the faculty of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville.
