                     Brian Doyle, PhD
Dr. Doyle is a consulting engineer with 40 years experience in air pollution control.  He supported Rutgers University air pollution training from 1976 to 2006.  Initially this consisted of half day lectures to bring real world experience to classes taught by Rutgers faculty.  In 1992 this occasional work expanded when Dr. Doyle became responsible for the development and regular presentation of a three day course titled Combustion Source Inspection.  The success of this course lead to the development and regular presentation of three additional courses for the Rutgers Air Compliance Center.  In 2002, under subcontract to the EPA he wrote the Student Manual and presentation slides for APTI 427 - Combustion Source Evaluation.  While the Rutgers Air Compliance Center, that has provided administrative organization and support for four of these courses, may cease operation at the end of fiscal 2007, Dr. Doyle continues to be available to teach air pollution training courses.  Presentations by Dr. Doyle can be custom tailored to student needs or can be substantially the same as it was when they were offered through Rutgers.
