Department of Geography and Geology - Andrew Wulff

andrew wulff Associate Professor of Geology


His research interests includes the petrogenetic history of volcanic rocks in the Chilean Andes and Mojave Desert, the health effects of residential radon and airborne particulate quartz dust, and connections to anthropology/archeology such as the sourcing of chert artifacts using trace element signatures, and the modeling paleoenvironments associated with early hominid finds in Java. These research interests involve quantitative analysis of a wide variety of geological materials using XRF, XRD, ICP-MS, SEM and electron microprobe, and he is pleased to have both undergraduate and graduate students as colleagues in all aspects of these investigations. Dr. Wulff also has a strong interest in developing innovative teaching strategies for all levels and is active in contributing to the earth science curricula in the local school district. He is active in training and leading workshops for pre- and in-service earth science teachers. Dr. Wulff serves as adviser for undergraduate Honors students and for undergraduate research projects. Students are expected to become proficient in analytical techniques, write grants, abstracts, and papers - and present research results at professional meetings. Students on these projects have so far received 34 grants from different sources. Contact Dr. Wulff at 270-745-5976; or email at: andrew.wulff@wku.edu.
