My current research explores the sources and fluxes of methane, a very powerful greenhouse gas.

Our professors have a passion for their fields and share that passion with their students.

Many of our faculty have been recognized for their research and work by agencies like the National Science Foundation, National Geographic, NASA, and many professional organizations.

And, unlike larger research universities, our professors teach at every level from freshmen to graduate courses.

Here’s some exciting news about Highlands University professors: Brandon Kempner, English, published the essay “Feathering the Truth” in , which discusses feathered dinosaurs, the nature of reality, and the contradictions of postmodern American culture.

Brooks Maki, Chemistry, presented two posters regarding ongoing research concerned with the discovery and synthesis of new biologically active organic small molecules at the national American Chemical Society meeting in Denver.

Additionally, as the faculty advisor for the NMHU Chemistry Club, he was asked to present in the “Successful Student Chapters” section of the meeting.

13 members of the chemistry club travelled to Denver to participate in the meeting.

In general our work indicates that fracking does not always lead to groundwater contamination, but our data do not refute previous studies from Pennsylvania.

We argue that monitoring programs are essential to investigating the link between water contamination and energy extraction.

This project was funded by the Deer Creek Foundation and the David and Sara Weston Foundation, and is available for download at this link.
