Narrative

Jose (Pepe) Longoria has a BS (Biology) from the University of Nuevo Leon, Mexico (1964), undergraduate and graduate studies in geology from Southern Methodist University (1968-1970). In 1972, he received a Ph.D. degree in Geosciences from the University of Texas at Dallas. He did post-doctoral work at the Institute of Paleobiology of the Polish Academy of Sciences.  Professor Longoria has extensive professional experience, first as a petroleum geologist (micropaleontologist) and later as an exploration geologist working on water and mineral resources of different regions of Mexico.

Currently Dr. Longoria is involved in research and teaching on natural disasters and environmental geology. His current academic activities include studies on the vulnerability and risk analysis of urban areas to natural disasters and human-induced environmental deterioration. He has developed a strong interest in the use of information technology in education and in the development of Asynchronous Learning Networks. Currently he teaches three online courses.

Prof. Longoria has been actively involved in earth science research for more than 45 years, he has made important original contributions to the earth sciences; his research activates span from field geological projects, to laboratory research and applied environmental work. His fields of research include: (1) Environmental Geology and Natural Disasters; (2) Remote Sensing and Exploration Geology; (3) Sedimentary Geology and Paleobiology; and (4) Information Technology Applied to teaching/learning in asynchronous environments. His research has been supported by grants from the NSF; Jet Propulsion Laboratory, NASA; the Petroleum Research Fund; and CONACYT

He is well known for his original contributions to the geology of Mexico in the fields of stratigraphy, tectonics, and micropaleontology where he has made important discoveries such as the establishment of new system of classification of Cretaceous planktonic foraminifera (Longoria, 1984), and the establishment of new species of foraminifera (Longoria, 1973, 9174, 1992).  He has also made significant contributions to the understanding of the geological evolution of Mexico; he developed an alternative tectonic model to for the Mesozoic of Mexico (Longoria, 1985).  His contributions to the study of natural disasters include the implementation of a holistic approach to understand the process of mitigation and recovery. Currently he is involved in applied research in earthquake engineering, volcanic hazards, and flood vulnerability (Longoria, 2009). He has developed a strong interest in information technology and its application to the classroom; he has made significant contribution in the field of distance education with his model of virtual classroom and virtual campus (Longoria, 2005). Prof. Longoria made substantial contributions to the understanding of environmental issues and the threat of natural disasters (Longoria, 2013).

Professor Longoria has an excellent record in teaching; he has taught undergraduate and graduate courses in biology and geology. The results of the investigations of Prof. Longoria are reflected in more than 100 articles and book chapters in peer-reviewed national and international journals. Prof. Longoria has extensive experience in the development of science programs; including curriculum planning. He was involved in the establishment of the geosciences program, and the ecology program at the Center for Advanced Studies of the State of Sonora (CESUES).  His administrative experience includes: Head of the Stratigraphy Branch of the Institute of Geology of the National Autonomous University (UNAM, Mexico City); Chair of the Department of Geology of the University of Sonora; and chair of the Applications Committee of the AN-MSI project.

Prof. Longoria devotes time for community service including being a member of the Project Action Committee of the National Science Foundation of the Advanced Networking project for Minority Serving Institutions (AN-MSI); serving as chair of the Applications Committee of the AN-MSI project. He also is a committee member of the Coalition for Diversification of Computers. Dr. Longoria has recently been invited to participate in an interactive planning committee on the application of technology at minority serving institutions (MSIs) sponsored by the Alliance for Equity in Higher Education. He was appointed as a member of the advisory committee for the Fond du Lac Tribal Technology Infrastructure Project ($2.4M NSF funded).He served as a member of the FIU Senate Online   Review Committee.
