Laurence Gill

Laurence Gill is a Professor in Environmental Engineering and former Head of the Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, Trinity College Dublin.

His research interests involve studying the fate and transport of both air and water-borne pollutants in the natural and built environment, as well as the development of passive treatment processes. Much of the work involves extensive field studies which are then used to develop mathematical models to gain further insight into the processes.

In recent years he has worked with Irish NGOs on several water and sanitation projects for some of the most vulnerable people in the world in sub-Saharan countries such as Democratic Republic of Congo, Sudan, Niger, Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania.
