I am a professor of Geosciences at Western Michigan University. My teaching and research interests are in the areas of hydrogeology, glacial geology, environmental geology, and geomorphology. I currently teach Hydrogeochemistry, GEOS 6000 every fall; Geomorphology, GEOS 4320, every spring; Glacia Geology, GEOS 5360, every other Summer I session, Introduction to Soils, GEOS 5060, every other fall, and Physical Geology, GEOS 1300, every fall. My ongoing research is focused in the area of glacial geology. I am interested in glacial landforms, deposits, and stratigraphy, as well as the hydrogeologic applicationns of glacial deposits.

Since 1996, my graduate students and I have mapped St. Joseph County, Van Buren County, and parts of Allegan and Barry Counties through the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, Office of Geological Survey. The mapping is funded through the STATEMAP, EDMAP, and Midwest Mapping Coalition programs of the US Geological Suvey.

I am also interested in various water quality issues of contaminated and uncontaminated aquifers.
