Braden R. Allenby is currently Lincoln Professor of Engineering and Ethics, and Professor of Civil, Environmental and Sustainable Engineering, and of Law, at Arizona State University, having moved from his previous position as the Environment, Health and Safety Vice President for AT&T in 2004. He is the founding director of the Center for Earth Systems Engineering and Management, and the founding chair of the Consortium for Emerging Technologies, Military Operations, and National Security, at ASU.  He is also an AAAS Fellow, a Batten Fellow in Residence at the University of Virginias Darden Graduate School of Business Administration, and a Fellow of the Royal Society for the Arts, Manufactures & Commerce. He was the U.S. Naval Academy Stockdale Fellow in 2009-2010, a Templeton Fellow in 2008-2010, and the J. Herbert Hollowman Fellow at the National Academy of Engineering in 1991-1992.  During 1995 and 1996 he served as Director of Energy and Environmental Systems at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.  Dr. Allenby received his BA from Yale University in 1972, his J. D. from the University of Virginia Law School in 1978, his Masters in Economics from the University of Virginia in 1979, his Masters in Environmental Sciences from Rutgers University in the Spring of 1989, and his Ph.D. in Environmental Sciences from Rutgers in 1992. His areas of expertise include industrial ecology, sustainable engineering, earth systems engineering and management, and emerging technologies.  His latest books are Industrial Ecology and Sustainable Engineering (co-authored with Tom Graedel, 2010), The Theory and Practice of Sustainable Engineering (Pearson/Prentice-Hall, 2011), and The Techno-Human Condition (with Dan Sarewitz, 2011).
