Dr. John Hooker is an Assistant Professor of Environmental Science. A geologist by background, John has extensive field experience in Mexico, Argentina, and Bolivia. Rock layers that have immense importance for drinking water in San Antonio and hydrocarbon exploration throughout the Gulf Coast region are beautifully exposed in the Sierra Madre Oriental near Monterrey, Mexico. Studying these rocks has provided John with invaluable perspective on how fluids flow in the subsurface, while studying throughout Latin America has given John a first-hand look at the rich tapestry of cultures that comprises the Americas. Despite this diversity, we all depend on natural resources provided by the Earth for our survival. Stewardship of our environment is a global imperative, and is best advanced when we reach across borders, share our knowledge, and work together.
