Craig is Professor of Geology and Co-Director of the Bucknell Environmental Center. He teaches courses in geomorphology, environmental geology, geologic hazards, hydrology, and planetary geology. Kochel’s primary research is in geomorphology (earth surface processes), primarily rivers, hillslope, and barrier islands. Much of his work has been on paleohydrology, the geomorphic response of landscapes to climate change, and impacts of land use on rivers. Much of his work has focused on catastrophic events and in the interaction between the landscape and humans (geologic hazards). Kochel is the author of more than forty-five research articles and the co-author of several books. He is also past chair of the Quaternary Geology and Geomorphology Division of the Geological Society of America. Locally, he is a member of the SRHCES and works with Buffalo Creek Watershed Alliance. Kochel has also been an active participant in numerous events related to the Forum on Religion and Ecology. Recently he has been involved in a major survey evaluating the success of stream restoration projects and in Mars-Earth analog sites for arctic processes in Alaska.

Matt is an aquatic biologist focusing on streams and rivers, specializing in ecosystem processes, including organic matter (carbon) and nutrient dynamics and ecosystem metabolism, while having a great deal of experience and expertise with macroinvertebrates. He teaches courses in population and community biology (evolution and ecology), limnology (freshwater ecology), and ecosystem ecology. Much of his research deals with the quality of streams in the Susquehanna watershed. Specific research projects have included: streams impaired by acid-mine drainage, agricultural and urban impacts on stream health, and monitoring of water quality of the West Branch Susquehanna River. He continues to focus on land-water interactions, management, and restoration of water quality, biology, and ecosystem processes in streams impacted by human activities. He is a member of the BUEC steering committee and is a Bucknell representative to the Susquehanna River Heartland Coalition for Environmental Studies (SRHCES). Matt is also a member of the Education and Diversity Committee of the North American Benthological Society (NABS).
