Lovell Named Engineers Without Borders Advisor


David Lovell, associate professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) and the Institute for Systems Research (ISR), will be the new faculty advisor of the Clark School's chapter of Engineers Without Borders (EWB).

"I am pleased that Dr. Lovell has accepted this role mentoring our students," said Clark School Dean Darryll Pines. "EWB is a highly regarded service organization and our chapter is considered one of the nation's best"

Lovell joined the Clark School in 1997. He earned a B.A. degree in mathematics from Portland State University, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in civil engineering from the University of California, Berkeley. He is a combat veteran of the United States Marine Corps. Lovell's primary research area is transportation engineering. He has conducted projects for the National Science Foundation, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the Federal Aviation Administration and many other organizations.

Having taught undergraduate and graduate courses in transportation engineering, structural mechanics, computing and numerical analysis, engineering design, simulation, and statistics, Lovell is currently teaching an "I"-series course on engineering in the developing world, and he is scheduled to teach another "I"-series course beginning in the fall of 2010 on the history of technological innovation in the transportation industry. Lovell teaches components of the review courses for the Fundamentals of Engineering exam and the Professional Engineering exam. He also teaches a regular summer course to high school seniors on engineering design.

Chair of ISR's Educational Program Committee, Lovell also has served as faculty mentor to two Gemstone teams, three Quest teams and three teams from the student chapter of EWB. He has supervised EWB projects in Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, and the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. He is a former faculty advisor to the student chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers. He is the 2008-2009 recipient of the Faculty Service Award in the CEE Department.

Lovell replaces Deborah Goodings as chapter advisor. Goodings is now chair of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at George Mason University.
