Shun Dar Lin, Ph.D. is one of the world's leading water and wastewater scientists with more than 50 years of practical and academic experience in the field. He is Professor Emeritus at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. A registered professional engineer in Illinois and in Taiwan, Dr. Lin has published more than 100 papers, articles, and reports related to water and wastewater engineering. He has taught and conducted research since 1960 at the Institute of Public Health of the National Taiwan University. In 1986, Dr. Lin received the Water Quality Division Best Paper Award for "Giardia lamblia and Water Supply" from the American Water Works Association. He developed the enrichment-temperature acclimation method for recovery enhancement of stressed fecal coliform which has been adopted in the Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater since the 18th Edition (1990). Dr. Lin is a life member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, the American Water Works Association, and the Water Environment Federation. He currently serves on many Task Force Committees for the Standard Methods. Dr. Lin was appointed by the Governor of Illinois to the Illinois Pollution Control Board (2008-2010). He is a consultant to the governments of Taiwan and the United States and for private firms.p>
