Sally Brown is a Research Professor at the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences at the University of Washington. Throughout her academic career, she has focused on the risks and benefits associated with the use of urban residuals, primarily municipal biosolids, but also composts and digestates generated from the organic fraction of municipal solid waste.

A significant part of her work centers on the climate impacts of different biosolids/food scrap end-use or disposal practices. She was part of the team that developed the BEAM model, a tool to calculate the climate impacts of biosolids processing and end-use, for the Canadian government. She also contributed to updating the model for the New York City biosolids program and has evaluated end-use impacts of food scraps for King County, WA, and other municipalities. Dr. Brown is a Fellow in the Soil Science Society of America.

She is a former two-term member of the National Academy of Science’s Standing Committee on Soil Science and was also a member of the NAS committee on Bioavailability of Contaminants in Soils and Sediments. She was the past chair and continues to be an active member of the USDA CREES committee on biosolids, now referred to as the W 4170 research group. She writes a regular column for Biocycle magazine.

Dr. Brown compiles a library of current research related to municipal biosolids and other organics, which is distributed internationally. She has an extensive list of peer-reviewed publications and has co-edited two books on urban agriculture. Additionally, she is a member of the USDA Committee on Urban and Innovative Agriculture.
