Department of Geography and Geology - 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: email@example.com.
