Rula A. Deeb, Ph.D., BCEEM, PMP


Rula A. Deeb, Ph.D., BCEEM, PMP, is a principal civil and environmental engineer based in California. She has more than 25 years of experience in private practice and academia addressing the cross-media fate and transport of contaminants and the remediation of complex soil and groundwater sites impacted by non-aqueous phase liquids. Deeb’s research and investigations during the past two decades have promoted awareness and improved the understanding of the sources, occurrence, fate and transport, and behavior of several of the most challenging environmental contaminants to date. She’s also engaged in the National Academy of Engineering’s Frontiers of Engineering program, which brings together emerging engineering leaders from industry, academia, and government to discuss pioneering technical work and leading-edge research in various engineering fields and industry sectors.

Deeb earned her doctorate in civil and environmental engineering at the University of California, Berkeley, and has received numerous accolades including being selected as a National Science Foundation Engineering Education Scholar for Excellence in Engineering Education, and receiving a Berkeley Engineering Innovation Young Outstanding Leader Award and an Interstate Technology and Regulatory Council’s Industry Recognition Award.
