Before becoming chairman of the Dept. of Earth & Physical Sciences, I had been a professional geoscientist for over 40 years. My specialties are in field geology, environmental geology, engineering geology, structural geology and geophysics. Throughout my years at York College, I have 'kept one foot in the working world and one in academia'. Whenever possible, I have let my students become involved in, or at least observe the work I was doing.
