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.
