Chris Swan

Chris Swan is an associate professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering and adjunct associate professor of the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service at Tufts University. He also serves as managing partner of E^3 Innovative Materials, LLC; a company focused on the research and development of viable reuse strategies for waste materials. Dr. Swan has also served as chair of Tufts CEE department (2002-07) and as an officer in the Environmental Engineering division of ASEE (2001-05). Dr. Swan’s current interests lie in the areas of waste reuse and service-based teaching in the engineering curriculum--often in synergistic ways. Such synergies naturally progressed to research on engineering education and training utilizing project-based learning and service-learning pedagogies--specifically their potential impacts on student learning and how these impacts may be evaluated and assessed.
