The academic activities in the DEEGS are devoted to both Teaching and Research. Below is a listing of selected works created by our faculty and students.
Dr. Gordana Vlahovic's primary research interests are in the area of seismotectonics and geohazards. She has worked extensively on the imaging of the intraplate seismic zones in North America by using tomography and potential field methods. Her secondary research interest is in geoscience education.
Dr. Timothy Mulrooney primary research interests are in all forms of GIS, including GIS data standards, GIS education and subject areas in which GIS can be applied at the college and high school level. He sees GIS as a powerful tool to bridge social science research with STEM disciplines and feels that GIS is an effective technical skill that can set job applicants apart from those who do not have these skills. Some of his recent research includes:
Students in our programs have a wide variety of interests and skill-sets that lead to further graduate study or work in the profession arena. Examples of research includes, but are not limited to the following.
