Personal profile

Personal profile

Andrew Stumpf received the Ph.D and M.Sc degrees in geology from the University of New Brunswick, in 2001 and 1995, respectively. He also received the B.Sc. (Hons.) degree in geography and geology from the University of Western Ontario in 1992. He has worked for government agencies, university departments and private industry over his 20 year career. For the past 8 years, he has been employed at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign as a research geologist in the Prairie Research Institute. He conducts basic and applied research for the Illinois State Geological Survey to unravel the major events of the most recent geologic (Quaternary) period, and apply these findings to address important societal issues, such as water supply management, mitigation of geologic hazards, and understanding climate change dynamics. His current research is focused on supporting water supply planning of buried valley aquifers in the glaciated US Midwest, geologic characterization of the critical zone in the Intensively Managed Landscapes Critical Zone Observatory (IMLCZO), and designing efficient geothermal energy systems.
