Julian Marshall is an associate professor of environmental engineering in the Department of Civil Engineering at University of Minnesota. He studies exposure to air pollution. His areas of focus include relationships between urban design and air pollution; pollution and health impacts of alternative transportation fuels (e.g., biofuels) and modes (e.g., walking and biking); and measuring air pollution exposures in low-income countries.

Marshall holds courtesy appointments in mechanical engineering, urban and regional planning, and environmental health sciences. He is a member of the Minnesota Population Center, a faculty scholar in the Center for Transportation Studies, and resident fellow at the Institute on the Environment. He co-founded and co-directs the Acara program, a series of classes and incubations on social entrepreneurship for environmental grand challenges in the United States and India. He co-founded and co-directs the Peace Corps Masters International program in environmental engineering at the University.

Marshall’s honors include a McKnight Land-Grant professorship and the Minnesota Young Civil Engineer of the Year Award. He earned a B.S.E. in chemical engineering (high honors) from Princeton and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in energy and resources from the University of California, Berkeley.
