    In addition to teaching courses in Earth and Mineral Sciences and Environmental Studies, I am the Sustainability Coordinator here at Penn State Altoona. I take an active involvement in Sustainability projects and frequently involve my students in these projects as well my research projects. My research interests include the modeling of hydrochemical processes using Geographic Information System (GIS) tools to study the impact of landscape change on water quality and biogeochemical cycling. I am also interested in the sustainable use of water resources in agricultural and urban watersheds.
