Dr. Ben Turner has been at Penn State DuBois since 2006 and is currently an Assistant Professor Of Mathematics and Geology. His research interests are in low-temperature/environmental geochemistry, mineral-waterinteractions, chemical hydrology, biogeochemical carbon cycling and mathematical modeling. Another key research focus is the role of mineral-water interactions on geochemical carbon cycling over time scales > 100 years. He is also interested in applying the tools of geochemistry and chemical hydrology to "environmental" problems, such as mine land reclamation, acid mine drainage, and contaminant remediation. Mathematically, he is interested in applying stochastic mathematical concepts to problems in Geosciences.
