Dr. Melanie Sattler has been a full-time faculty member in Civil Engineering at the University of Texas at Arlington for 12 years. Her research and teaching interests include air quality (air pollution emission measurement, modeling, and control) and sustainable energy (in particular, energy from waste). She and her students have published over 100 peer-reviewed conference proceeding and journal papers.

Prior to joining UT Arlington, she worked in environmental consulting and for the North Central Texas Council of Governments. She received her Ph.D. in environmental engineering from the University of Texas at Austin and is a registered professional engineer in the state of Texas.
