Nyblade appointed co-director of Marcellus Center for Outreach and Research

9/29/2016

Andrew Nyblade, professor of geosciences, has been named co-director of Penn State’s Marcellus Center for Outreach and Research (MCOR), effective immediately. He joins Thomas Murphy, education and strategy manager with the Penn State Extension Marcellus Education Team, in leading MCOR.

MCOR was formed in August 2010 as a Penn State education, research and outreach initiative focused on shale energy. The center extends science-based information to stakeholder groups including state agencies, elected officials, the natural gas industry, landowners, environmental organizations, and the public to protect the Commonwealth’s natural resources, while advocating for a science-based and responsible approach to handling the state’s natural gas reserves.

"Since its inception, MCOR has played a key role in bringing knowledge from across the University to bear in addressing issues related to shale-gas development," Murphy said. "Andy Nyblade's research expertise and leadership will be significant assets in advancing the center's mission, and I look forward to working with him to continue our progress."  More
