We invite you to browse our website to learn more about our degree programs, or stop by the EES office in Geoscience Building Room 107 with any questions!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Our students’ learning experience isn’t confined to the classroom. They also participate in cutting-edge, collaborative research in the laboratory, guided by expert faculty on projects funded by agencies including the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation.
Dr. Winguth's research focuses on oceanic and atmospheric dynamics and their interactions with biogeochemical cycles over a broad range of Earth history.
