From 1971 to 1973 he was Branch Chief of the Environmental Engineering Branch at the U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratory. His responsibilities included supervision of research on air, noise, and water pollution control and solid waste management for Army facilities. In 1973, he joined the faculty at Michigan State University. He has taught and conducted research in the areas of air pollution control and hazardous waste management. 

His honors and awards include the State-of-the-Art Award from the ASCE, Chapter Honor Member of Chi Epsilon, Sigma Xi, election as a Fellow in the Air and Waste Management Association, and election as a Diplomate in the American Academy of Environmental Engi-neers with certification in hazardous waste management. He has received teaching awards from the American Society of Civil Engineers Student Chapter, Michigan State University College of Engineering, North Central Section of the American Society for Engineering Education, Great Lakes Region of Chi Epsilon, and the Amoco Corporation. In 1998, he received the Lyman A. Ripperton Award for distinguished achievement as an educator from the Air and Waste Management Association. In 2007, he was recognized as the Educational Professional of the Year by the Michigan Water Environment Association. He is a registered professional engineer in Michigan.
