WVU researchers donate protective gear to COVID-19 efforts
Researchers across the
Eberly College of Arts and Sciences at
West Virginia University have moved quickly to donate personal protective
equipment from their laboratories to healthcare workers on the front lines of the
Donations have come from dozens of Eberly College labs working in biology, chemistry,
geology and geography,
physics and astronomy and
psychology. Over the past several days, each of these departments inventoried
their labs for any gear that would be useful for healthcare professionals.
We are pleased to announce that Dr. Charles Shobe, a geomorphologist specializing
in cutting edge modeling of landscape evolution, will join the Department
of Geology and Geography as a new Assistant Professor of Surficial Processes
in January of 2021. Dr. Shobe received a PhD from the University of Colorado-Boulder
and is currently a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellow at the German
Research Center for Geosciences in Potsdam.
