SUNY Brockport Earth Sciences

Welcome to my home page!

I have been associated with the Water Resources program at SUNY-Brockport since 1996.  I teach a variety of courses in this program, including Hydrology, Wetlands Systems, and Water Resource Issues.  You can find out more about my courses by having a look at the links under the navigation menu to the left.

I am the advisor for the Water Resources major, so you can contact me to find out about academic requirements, job prospects, or anything else about the major.  I also have an interest in the field of Geographic Information Systems (GIS).  This computer program is a valuable tool that can be applied to almost any field of study or profession. Send me a note down if you want to discuss how GIS might be of use to your studies or career.

I have an active research program.  Besides all the other rewards that come with "doing science," I am especially glad that I can involve undergraduates in my projects.  This is a really good opportunity to delve more deeply into areas of interest than the standard curriculum allows.  Some of the projects I work on are flood forecasting, determinants of ecological health of wetlands, and control of nonpoint source pollution.

I am very enthusiastic about Water Resources and the entire Earth Sciences program at Brockport.  I would be glad to answer any questions you might have!
