Dr. Timothy Morin earned his Ph.D. in the Environmental Science Graduate Program housed within the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Geodetic Science at the Ohio State University. His undergraduate degree is in mechanical engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology. Between his undergraduate education and graduate school he served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Guyana for two years in a small riverine wetland community where he discovered his passion for wetlands. He now studies the carbon cycle in wetlands, particularly methane emissions using a variety of cutting edge field methodologies and state-of-the-art ecosystem modeling techniques.
