I have been on the faculty at Winthrop for more than 20 years and have served in many capacities.
Department of Interdisciplinary Studies: In August 2011, a new department in the College of Arts and Sciences was formed which brought together interdisciplinary programs (including Environmental Sciences and Studies) under one umbrella. I am the first chair of this new department and have moved from Sims Science Building to the ground floor of Bancroft Annex. For more information about the department, click here.
Environmental Program: Since 2002, I have been the Dalton Endowed Chair of Environmental Sciences and Studies, an interdisciplinary program that offers two majors and two minors; click here for more information about the environmental program. . In academic year 2006-2007, I served as an American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Science and Technology Policy Fellow at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), where I contributed to the administration of the geosciences research program and monitored energy-water issues affecting DOE. I currently chair the campus Sustainability Committee and am involved in infusing more sustainability education across campus.
Geology Program: Within the Department of Chemistry, Physics, and Geology, I have taught a variety of geology courses such as physical geology, environmental geology, oceanography, Earth science for elementary education majors, marine geology, and geochemistry. My geology research interests relate to water and sediment chemistry, particularly in coastal environments such as salt marshes and estuaries.
