About Dave Penrose,
TITLE

Dave Penrose has spent the past 10 years assessing the effectiveness of stream restoration projects using biological tools, specifically benthic (bottom-dwelling) insects. He has also taught many workshops which focus on taxonomy of aquatic insects. Prior to his work at NCSU Dave was employed with the NC Division of Water Quality as a benthic taxonomist and studied the impacts of both point and non-point sources of water pollution to aquatic insects. Dave continues to conduct research on restored streams, continues to work with students and remains active in national policy and technical review committees.
