We are all responsible for pollution that may adversely affect humans and the environment. As the Environmental Engineering professor at Trine University I strive to make sure students fully understand the extensive connections between humans, pollution, and the environment. With a strong understanding of environmental problems, we can then work together to develop and design sustainable engineering solutions that protect people and the environment.

As a teacher I am always trying to find new ways to help students “make it stick”. Currently, I am incorporating brain science, cognitive psychology, and active learning strategies in the classroom to ensure student learning.  Through the Trine University Center for Teaching Excellence, I also help other faculty members develop their own teaching skills.

My family and I love being a part of the Angola, IN community. We can be spotted all around town, but you are most likely to find me at Five Lakes Coffee. Our dog Jack enjoys all of the hiking trails in and around Angola, particularly Pokagon State Park and the numerous Acres Land Trust preserves.
