For the past 25 years, Andrew Stumpf has been studying the landforms and processes of glaciated terrains throughout North America that have critical societal impacts. Andrew is a Principal Research Scientist at the Prairie Research Institute at UIUC. Andrew is passionate about multidisciplinary applied research that has fostered key collaborations across several scientific disciplines and professional organizations. He currently acts as the Project Manager for the NSF Critical Interface Network in Intensively Managed Landscapes (CINet) project which seeks to advance our understanding of important landscape elements that regulate hydrological, biological, ecological, geological, and chemical processes on which agricultural production and environmental quality depend. In 2019, Andrew co-founded the Illinois Geothermal Coalition at UIUC and applies his geological expertise to support the expansion of geothermal energy in Illinois and the U.S. Midwest region. He uses the UIUC campus as a "living laboratory" to involve students and faculty in the research. Andrew earned Ph.D and M.Sc degrees in Geology from the University of New Brunswick and honours B.Sc from the University of Western Ontario.
