I am Gary Robbins. I am a Professor of Geology at UCONN in the Department of Natural Resources and the Environment (NRE) in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR). I specialize in hydrogeology- the study of groundwater.You can find more about me at:

The Groundwater Program at UCONN is recognized as one of the Northeast's premier programs in applied hydrogeology. Our students are very much in demand after graduation. We have graduated students that have become high level goverment officials, owners of environmental firms, university professors, and more. We are very proud of our graduates and their accomplishments.

The program is well equipped to carry out state-of-the-art research and teaching. UCONN maintains advanced drilling equipment, sampling and field analytical instruments, geophysical instrumentation,and ultramodern analytical laboratories that support groundwater related teaching and research.

We have two experimental laboratories and four on campus well fields for conducting training and research. We offer undergraduate research opportunities and help our students find internships.

Welcome back students and welcome to the class of 2017!
