Biography:

Ken Bevis has actively conducted field research, taught courses and mentored students at the college level in geology since the late 1980's. His areas of expertise include geomorphology, more specifically glacial geology and soils. Bevis has a strong personal interest in environmental issues that he has effectively transferred to his teaching through a variety of courses he offers at Hanover College.

Bevis also has more than 30 years of experience camping and hiking, and 15+ years of experience leading geological field trips for students. During that time, he has gained skills and experience observing, interpreting and describing a plethora of geological features and processes (with an emphasis on human interactions where appropriate) to professionals, students and the general public.
