Welcome to my site! My name is Chad Spreadbury, and I am a graduate student at the University of Florida working towards my PhD in Environmental Engineering Sciences. I’m originally from Pinellas County, FL and attended St. Petersburg College where I completed my Associates in Arts degree. I continued at the University of Florida and earned my Bachelor in Science in Environmental Engineering Sciences. By finishing these degrees I hope to use the knowledge and skills I obtain to go forth and make improvements to the world we live in and advance the field itself. I believe that many of the issues we face now and will face can be solved if we are creative enough. Through this creativeness we can find solutions that not only are efficient and work well but are also economically feasible. I wish to be a part of these solutions and that keeps me dedicated to pursuing my degree and to thinking outside the box!
