Professor of Geosciences

Curriculum Vitae

Background

Presently, I am a Professor in the Department of Geoscience at the University of Montana. I have been on the faculty at UM since 1977 and have a wide range of experience in teaching, research and policy. From 2004-2006, I served as the Lead Scientist for the California Bay-Delta Authority, Science Program, in Sacramento, CA, which oversees science conducted for the CALFED Program, a multi-year, billon-dollar ecosystem restoration and water management program in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River-Delta system. At the University of Montana, I teach and do research in environmental geoscience, specifically, human effects on rivers, environmental geochemistry and response to global climate change. I presently teach courses in Climate Change (Freshman), Global Change (Senior), and Human Effects on Rivers and River Restoration (Graduate). I have authored about fifty refereed journal publications, many reports, two books, and many abstracts/papers presented at professional meetings; close to sixty grants and contracts since 1979 total approximately $6 million.
