Research is one of the fundamental core missions of higher education.  As Faculty, we don't just teach knowledge, we create it.

My research is grounded in my commitment to the stewardship of our environmental and water resources.  Solving the complex challenges of sustainability requires a multi-disciplinary approach to our research as well as new paradigms in education.  Students working with me are encouraged to investigate real world problems.  Student learning is guided to develop a study plan that includes engineering courses as well as other disciplines.  Student learning is also guided to develop independent learning skills that will foster creative and innovative projects and research that advance our knowledge and their careers.

Students interested in research are invited to contact me to discuss their ideas and goals.  I encourage both undergraduates and graduate research education.  My research and scholarship interests include contaminant hydrology, remediation of contaminated soil and water, advances in water treatment technology, and engineering education.  For more information on my publications and funding, please see my vitae.
