Headshot of Andrew Luhmann

Andrew Luhmann, Ph.D.

Dr. Luhmann’s research generally involves the fields of hydrogeology and geochemistry, and his current research projects funded by the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy explore geophysical responses to recharge events in karst aquifers and chemomechanical processes in geologic carbon sequestration environments, respectively.

Position:

  • Assistant Professor of Geology

Institution:

  • Wheaton College

Bio:

After completing graduate school, Dr. Luhmann conducted research as a Postdoctoral Researcher/Research Associate for four years in the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. He spent the following three years as an Assistant Professor of Hydrology in the Department of Earth and Environmental Science at the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology in Socorro, NM. Dr. Luhmann’s research generally involves the fields of hydrogeology and geochemistry, and his current research projects funded by the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy explore geophysical responses to recharge events in karst aquifers and chemomechanical processes in geologic carbon sequestration environments, respectively. He currently serves as an Associate Editor of Hydrogeology Journal and the Primary Representative of the Joint Technical Program Committee for the Geological Society of America Karst Division.
