Peter Jaffé

Princenton University

Peter Jaffé is a Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Princeton University. His research has focused extensively on biological and chemical pollutant dynamics in porous media; simulation and analysis at the watershed scale of soil contamination processes and nutrient cycling; nitrogen cycling at the watershed scale; and dynamics of trace metals and radionuclides in sediments, wetland soils, and groundwater. Areas of current emphasis include biological defluorination of per- and polyfluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS); and understanding novel biological processes for anaerobic ammonium oxidation, focusing from field-scale transformations to applications for wastewater treatment.
