Environmental Science Faculty
I am a professor and extension agricultural engineer with academic background in industrial (BS, Engineering Operations, Iowa State University) and civil engineering (MS, PhD, Iowa State University). I specialize in research, teaching, and technology transfer programs focusing on agricultural and industrial waste management and water quality. I am a founding member and past president of the Iowa Groundwater Association, and have served on the advisory board of the Iowa Organics Recycling Association, as chairman of the Iowa Section of American Society of ASABE, and am a member of the editorial board of Compost Science and Utilization.
My research has included pesticides in rural wells, measurement of leakage from earthen manure storage structures, and evaluation of soil erosion and water quality impacts associated with application of composted organics to newly constructed roadway embankments. Recent work has focused on pollution prevention and biosecurity in the livestock industry, including studies on bio–secure emergency disposal of livestock in Canada, environmental impacts and biosecurity of composting for emergency disposal of livestock mortalities in Iowa, and pathogen suppression and VOC releases during emergency anaerobic digestion of catastrophic livestock losses caused by Foot-and-Mouth disease.
Broader Impact of My Work
I work with engineers, farmers, state and federal agencies around the world, and the general public to improve understanding of environmental issues and to implement environmentally sustainable practices. I strive to share the purpose, methods, and outcomes of my research not only through peer-reviewed publications but through ISU Extension publications, field demonstrations, and project-related websites including:
