Gold Nuggets: Humanitarian Engineering Interview Series

Dr. Paul Santi is a Professor of Geological Engineering at the Colorado School of Mines, where he has been on faculty for over 19 years. Previously, he taught for 6 years at the Missouri University of Science and Technology and worked for 6 years as an engineer and consultant in San Francisco and Denver. His recent research has focused on analysis, prediction and mitigation design for debris flows, landslide dewatering and analysis, engineering geology pedagogy, and general geologic hazard analysis. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Geology and Physics from Duke University, an MS in Geology from Texas A&M and a Ph.D. in Geological Engineering from the Colorado School of Mines. He is a Fellow of the Geological Society of America and has been the President of the Association of Environmental Engineering Geologists. He is currently the director of the Center for Mining Sustainability, which manages multiple research projects with a partner university in Peru.

Dr. Jonathan (Josh) Sharp is Director of the Hydrologic Science and Engineering Program and an Associate Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Colorado School of Mines. His research focuses on the implications of biological processes on water quality and reuse in both natural and engineered settings. It is grounded in a multidisciplinary approach that combines molecular, microbiological, and geochemical tools to address fundamental and applied questions at the interface of environmental engineering, microbiology and hydrology. With this diverse background, enjoy this insightful and fascinating conversation!

In this interview, co-hosted by two geological engineers, Dr. Alexis Navarre-Sitchler discusses the ethical and socio-technical applications of geological engineering. Dr. Navarre-Sitchler has studied aqueous geochemistry, with a special focus on CO2 contamination of groundwater.

Hear from Mines Humanitarian Engineering Executive Director and Electrical Engineering Professor Dr. Kevin Moore about his experience working, teaching, and researching as an electrical engineer while focusing on design, education, diversity, and inclusion. Dr. Moore’s interests include iterative learning, robotics, and robotics systems.

Listen as we discuss with Mines Civil Engineering Professor Dr. Marte Gutierrez about what responsible and ethical engineering looks like in different engineering fields. Dr. Gutierrez’s main interests are Geomechanics and Energy and Environmental Sustainability.
