Shale Researchers

Jennifer Bowman, M.S. (Geology, Ohio University)

bowmanj2@ohio.edu

Bowman is interim director of environmental programs at the Voinovich School and works regularly with the School’s environmental, water and GIS teams. She developed and manages an online water quality database for Ohio (www.watersheddata.com).  The online database is also an interactive evaluation system for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Mineral Resources Management to track successes of acid mine drainage remediation in Appalachian coal watersheds. She also teaches the course “Credible Data Training for Chemical Water Quality Assessment” and coordinates the training of area watersheds volunteers in family-level macroinvertebrate sampling. Other research interest include: evaluating headwater streams’ biological health, groundwater testing, and long-term monitoring of surface water to show trends in chemical and biological changes.

Areas of Research: Water, Data, Land, Shale


Lezlee J. Ware, Ph.D. (Experimental Social Psychology, Ohio University)

warel@ohio.edu

Ware is a research associate for Ohio University’s Voinovich School and works within applied research on projects employing quantitative, qualitative, and mixed research methods and analyses. Ware has a broad range of experience, including program evaluation and strategic planning, within a variety of disciplines. Her work can be found in peer-reviewed journals within the fields of public health, nursing, diabetes, applied and legal psychology. Ware has led several regional needs assessments for Federally Qualified Health Centers, and her work has been incorporated into numerous competitive grant applications and used to tailor health services to the needs of low-income residents in Ohio.

Areas of Research: Data, Shale


Elkan Kim, Ph.D. Candidate (Computer Technology, Ohio University)

kimt@ohio.edu

Kim works as a lead software development engineer at the Voinovich School where he develops data visualization tools which aim to significantly improve viewers’ understanding of information and database-driven web-based applications. In addition to developing these tools, Kim helps clients learn how to incorporate new technologies to better communicate with their local, regional and international audiences and train them in the maintenance and upkeep of the Web sites developed for them by the School. He uses a wide range of computer languages and tools (JavaScript, Perl, ColdFusion, VisualBasic, ASP, ASP.NET, SQL, MySQL, Oracle, and ArcGIS) in his work.

Areas of Research: Data, Energy, Shale


Jason P. Trembly, Ph.D.

trembly@ohio.edu

Trembly joined Ohio University in 2011 after serving as team leader for syngas and CO2 conversion at RTI International’s Energy Technology Unit. A graduate faculty member in the Departments of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, he currently directs the Russ College’s Institute for Sustainable Energy and the Environment. Trembly’s research focuses on process intensification to increase sustainability in the energy and environmental spaces. His research group utilizes the combination of process modeling with material/process development to effectively address key regional, state, and national needs. Specific areas of interest include syngas conversion, natural gas/NGLs conversion, wastewater treatment, nutrient recovery, high temperature electrochemical systems, and techno-economic studies. He has been PI for more than $12 million in sponsored research, primarily for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and has a citation index more than 600. He completed his graduate studies as an ORISE Fellow at the U.S. DOE’s National Energy Technology.

Kevin Crist, Ph.D. (Chemical Engineering, University of Iowa)

cristk@ohio.edu

Crist is a professor of chemical engineering and a faculty fellow at the Voinovich School. He is also director of the Air Quality Center at the Institute for Sustainable Energy & the Environment, which supports and coordinates research, educational programs and community outreach in order to meet the challenges of protecting environmental quality and jobs in the Ohio River Valley Region. Crist’s research interests include: urban- and regional-scale air-quality monitoring; emission inventory assessments; and photochemical, dispersion, and pesticide emission modeling.

Areas of Research: Air, Energy, Data, Shale, Pesticides


Scott Miller, M.S. (Environmental Studies, Ohio University)

millers1@ohio.edu

Miller is associate dean of industry partnerships at the Russ College of Engineering and Technology. Previously with the Voinovich School, he worked with many stakeholders to shape and implement programs to elevate and enhance Ohio University’s research. Miller was named a 2010 National Energy Executive with the US Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colorado; was board chair for the University Clean Energy Alliance of Ohio; and is the principle program manager for the State of Ohio’s Climate Change Action Plan in partnership with The Ohio State University.
