According to the AICCM press release, Semken is an ethnogeologist and geoscience education researcher in the School of Earth and Space Exploration at Arizona State University. “His research focuses on ways that scientific inquiry and teaching of Earth system sciences interact with indigenous and local knowledge, sense of place, and the affective domain,” the release said.
