Biography

Wil V. Srubar III is a PhD Candidate in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Stanford University and a US Green Building Council LEED® Accredited Professional. His research focuses on the sustainability and durability of civil infrastructure materials derived from renewable resources. He works closely with an interdisciplinary team of colleagues in chemical and environmental engineering on the development of low-embodied energy materials for construction applications. His professional interests lie at the nexus of sustainable materials, public policy, and the development of green building codes and standards.

In addition to research, Wil has been an active member of the Stanford graduate community, serving as coordinator for Stanford’s New Graduate Student Orientation program, as co-founder of the Stanford Polymer Collective, and as coordinator of the Chi Environmental Conference, an interdisciplinary workshop sponsored by Stanford’s Woods Institute for the Environment, for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars engaged in environmental research. In 2012, he was awarded the Gerald J. Lieberman Fellowship, an award given to ten graduate students each year who best demonstrate the potential of becoming academic leaders through their exhibits of scholarship, leadership, and service at Stanford University.

Wil received his Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering from Texas A&M University with a concentration in structural engineering and architectural history in 2006. He received his Master of Science degree in 2008 from The University of Texas at Austin where he studied structural engineering, sustainable architecture, and the durability of civil infrastructure materials.
