Dr. Julie Korak is a member of the Environmental Engineering Program at the University of Colorado Boulder and is rostered in the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering. She has an interdisciplinary background in Chemical and Environmental Engineering and is a licensed Professional Engineer in the State of Colorado. Prior to joining CU, she worked in the Water Treatment Group at the Bureau of Reclamation, U.S. Department of the Interior in Denver, CO.
Dr. Korak’s research interests are broadly focused on water treatment engineering spanning municipal drinking water, water reuse and industrial waste management. Her recent projects include developing holistic water treatment and waste brine management processes for ion exchange systems and evaluating corrosion of drinking water distribution systems. Her research also focuses on using optical sensing techniques to characterize dissolved organic matter (DOM) fate and transport in drinking water treatment processes.
