Ian Pepper is currently a Professor at the University of Arizona. Pepper is an environmental microbiologist specializing in the molecular ecology of the environment.
His research has focused on the fate and transport of pathogens in air, water, soils and wastes. He is the author or co-author of six textbooks; 40 book chapters; and over peer-review journal articles. Charles P. Gerba is a Professor at the University of Arizona.
He conducts research the transmission of pathogens through the environment. His recent research encompasses the transmission of pathogens by water, food and fomites; fate of pathogens in land applied wastes; development of new disinfectants; domestic microbiology and microbial risk assessment. He has been an author on more than articles including several books in environmental microbiology and pollution science.
In he received the A. Black Award from the American Water Works Association for outstanding contributions to water science and in he received the McKee medal from the Water Environment Federation for outstanding contributions to groundwater protection. He is an environmental microbiologist specializing in the development and use of molecular technologies to enhance the detection and remediation of environmental contamination.
This includes the detection and identification of microbial pathogens from animal, human, and natural sources and also the characterization of microbial populations and communities contributing to applied remediation processes such as the bioremediation of organic and metal contaminants.
He teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in environmental microbiology and environmental soil science. He is the author or co-author of over 45 peer-reviewed journal articles and 4 book chapters.
