Brian Teppen studies dirt at MSU in the Department of Plant, Soil, and Microbial Sciences. In particular, Brian and his colleagues work on soil chemistry, risk assessment, and remediation of organic pollutants in soils. Brian was drawn into many wonderful “RCAHnnections” when his daughter attended RCAH and worked for three years with Anita Skeen and Laurie Hollinger at the RCAH Center for Poetry.
