HYEONG-MOO SHIN, ASSISTANT PROFESSOR

HYEONG-MOO SHIN, ASSISTANT PROFESSOR

Dr. Shin’s research is in the field of environmental health sciences, which study how the natural and built environments may affect human health. His primary expertise is in assessing human exposure to environmental chemicals for use in risk assessment and epidemiologic studies.

MAJIE FAN, ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR

MAJIE FAN, ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR

Dr. Fan studies the sedimentary record of tectonics and paleoclimate. She applies field-based, laboratory, and numerical modeling approaches to understand basin evolutions, tectonic processes responsible for the formation of mountains, and associated climatic and environmental changes.

QUINHONG ‘MAX’ HU, ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR

QUINHONG ‘MAX’ HU, ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR

Dr. Hu’s research focuses on fluid flow and chemical transport in porous and fractured media, in the intersection of the hydrosphere, geosphere, and biosphere with relevance to sustainable energy, the environment, and water resources management.

MERLYND NESTELL, PROFESSOR

MERLYND NESTELL, PROFESSOR

Dr. Nestell studies general invertebrate paleontology and micropaleontology; late Paleozoic foraminifers and conodonts; and Pennsylvanian and Permian biostratigraphy. He is also an academic advisor for graduate students in the M.S. Geoscience options and the Petroleum Geoscience professional option.

GEOLOGY FIELD CAMP

GEOLOGY FIELD CAMP

Each summer, the Department of EES offers a month-long Field Camp in Arlington and New Mexico. The camp gives undergraduate students hands-on experience in mapping and studying lake geochemistry, sedimentary systems, and igneous terrain.
