Associate Professor of Geoscience, Kevin M. Spigel, joined the Unity College faculty in 2008. Kevin's research focuses on surficial hydrology and environmental change. As an undergraduate student, Kevin worked on two research projects studying stream discharge and sediment transport under a variety of flow conditions using flumes designed to simulate actual river channels. While working on his M.S. thesis, Kevin was hired by the United States Forest Service as a hydrologic technician studying hillslope erosion after wildfire in Montana. For his Ph.D., Kevin studied lake sediments in Wisconsin in order to reconstruct post-glacial environmental change using fossil pollen, environmental magnetics, and other sediment properties. In many of his courses, Kevin integrates research projects and a variety of applied learning activities to create an experiential learning atmosphere. Kevin lives in Unity with his wife, Lindsay, and their dog Porter. In his free time, Kevin enjoys fishing, hiking, house renovations, and homebrewing.
