I joined the faculty in Earth and Environmental Science at CSU East Bay in September, 2008 after twelve years as a research scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. 

I am actively engaged in research in isotope hydrology and contaminant hydrogeology, and maintain a strong connection with the research group in Isotopic Tracers and Transport at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.  

My teaching philosophy centers around experiential learning and providing students with a classroom atmosphere in which they feel free to explore the subject matter in a way that builds on their own life experience.
