My current research interests at IUP deal with water quality issues, with a particular focus on the effects of Marcellus shale gas extraction in Indiana County and western Pennsylvania. Since 2011, my students and I have been involved in a water monitoring study at the Beaver Run Reservoir in Westmoreland County. More about the Beaver Run Project.
