Dr. Jason Stuckey is a Soil Scientist by training with expertise in the processes governing the fate and transport of metals and nutrients in the environment. Prior to arriving at Multnomah, he worked as a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Delaware, researching the mechanisms by which soils retain organic carbon, which is important for soil fertility as well as climate regulation. His doctoral work involved delineating the factors that control natural arsenic release from sediments to groundwater in the Mekong Delta (Cambodia). His master’s research evaluated the potential of using a synthetic clay amendment for remediating copper contaminated soils in Chile.

Jason values the opportunity that he has at Multnomah to equip students to study and care for the environment. He has a deeply seated conviction that the Christian mission is comprehensive, and followers of Jesus have a role to play in the restorative and redemptive work of Creation care to the glory of God. Jason is excited to work in a place where the harmony of the Christian faith and scientific study is recognized and embraced.

Jason’s interests include soils, environmental chemistry, philosophy, theology, and Great Books. Outside of work, he enjoys spending time with his family, cycling, hiking, gardening, and cooking.
