Current Position

I began serving on the engineering faculty at West Virginia University in 2001. I am a full professor and am the program coordinator for the MS-Industrial Hygiene Program.

My research is focused on work that can be translated to professional practice, especially in ventilation design, noise measurement and control, and assessment of airborne concentrations of contaminants.



1979- present: Have provided industrial hygiene or ventilation design advice to at least 500 industrial operations.

In addition, I have served more than 30 times as an expert witness for many different legal firms representing both plaintiffs and defendants. Cases have involved industrial operations and sometimes the EPA or OSHA.

I have taught my own series of ventilation short courses for 25 years.
