Of his 41+ years with the USGS, 34 of them have been with the New Jersey Water Science Center researching water quality issues on the fate, transport, and remediation of ground water contaminants in various aquifers.

Over his career, he has been instrumental in developing techniques, procedures and sampling methods used throughout the USGS, published numerous reports and mentored junior scientists.  Tom is passionate about volunteering and for the last 24 years he has been heavily involved with an organization that shelters abused and runaway teenagers.  Thank you, Tom, for being an outstanding role model and mentor!
