Barbara Doll

Extension Associate Professor and Extension Specialist

Professional Engineer

Dr. Barbara Doll is a licensed professional engineer with over 20 years of experience in ecological restoration. She teaches professional development workshops and academic courses in fluvial geomorphology and ecological restoration. She has secured and managed more than $7 million in external funding to implement water quality and restoration demonstration projects and conduct research at NC State University. She has conducted design, permitting, bidding and construction oversight for several restoration projects in this role. She obtained and managed $8.5 in funding between 1998 and 2011 for restoration of 6000 feet of highly degraded urban channel.
