Serving as the fisheries and water resources discipline and internship coordinators, Ron Crunkilton has been a faculty member since 1990. He teaches upper division courses in environmental toxicology, biological assessment of water quality, invasive species and field techniques used in the aquatic sciences. He also teaches an introduction to soil and a water resource course to first and second year students. His research focuses on the effects of contaminants on aquatic organisms, populations and communities. He enjoys canoeing, kayaking, rafting and swimming in his free time.
