Faculty & Staff – David Schmidt
David Schmidt, Ph.D., Environmental Science
Prof. Schmidt will join the Department of Biology and Environmental Science with several years of experience teaching. He sends this introduction:
“I have spent the last 9 years living in west Texas, but I was born and raised in the Midwest – it is so good to be back! Since I was a young boy, I have always had a passion for being outdoors and exploring nature. Whenever I get the chance, I like to hike, camp, kayak, and collect fossils. In school, I studied geology and my areas of interest include sedimentology, paleontology, and environmental geology.
Currently, I lead field expeditions to the Badlands of South Dakota for paleontological expeditions. I also enjoy music, movies, exercising, traveling, and love to spend time with my family. I look forward to the fall semester, and I am very excited to work with the students, faculty, and staff of Westminster.”
