Huntington Beach, California / Las Vegas, Nevada
Dr. Hoaglund is a geologist with more than 30 years of experience in environmental research, teaching, and consulting in the private sector, government, and academia. He received his BS and MS degrees in geology from the University of Wisconsin, then worked in Kansas with the Kansas Geological Survey to find supplies to replace the depleting Ogallala Aquifer, followed by environmental consulting on cold war legacy ground water contamination. He next completed his doctorate in geology from Michigan State University, completing a US Geological Survey regional groundwater model of the Michigan Basin used to calculate modern and Pleistocene groundwater and brine discharge to the Great Lakes and rivers in Michigan. He taught hydrogeology, groundwater modeling, environmental geology, and glacial and climate geology at the University of Michigan before joining Pennsylvania State University research on regional climate-hydrologic models, sponsored by the National Science Foundation, and groundwater nitrate studies, funded by the US Department of Agriculture. In 2007, Dr. Hoaglund moved to southern California, and resumed work on cold war legacy groundwater contamination. He founded Carbon Negative Water Solutions in 2010 to pursue energy consulting related to water resource development, desalination, renewable energy development, hydrogen production, and CO2 sequestration. He is currently on a long term contract with the Department of Energy working on the groundwater contamination of the Nevada Test Site related to cold war legacy nuclear testing. So he's already cleared at the DOE and ready to work with NREL!!!
