I perform wetland delineations, mitigation site assessments, and monitoring of constructed wetlands for the wetland science program. I concentrate on soil mapping.
My emphasis is on soil pedology; the genesis, classification, and morphology of soils. I am especially interested in the development of hydric soil characteristics.
I have a special interest in promoting interest and improving ability in soil science through soil judging contests at the high school, community college, and university levels.
