Charles E. Dunlap received a B.A. degree in English and another one in geology (summa cum laude) from Amherst College, Amherst, Mass, USA, in 1989 and went on to earn a Ph.D. degree in geology/geochemistry from the University of California, Santa Cruz, Calif, USA, in 1996, where he was a U.C. Regents Scholar and Recipient of an IGPP Fellowship at Los Alamos National Labs. Dr. Dunlap completed his doctoral thesis on the 10th century C.E. eruption of Changbaishan volcano (located in China and North Korea) assessing mineralogy, major and trace element chemistry, stable isotope systematics (Sr, Nd, and Pb), and U-series disequilibria as a chronometer of timing of magma formation prior to eruption. Following postdoctoral work on stable lead isotopes as tracer of the biogeochemical cycling of lead (and other toxic metals) in the Environmental Toxicology Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz, he worked from 1999 through 2004 as Director and Assistant Professor of the Environmental Conservation and Research Center at the American University of Armenia, Yerevan, Armenia (a graduate university accredited in the United States and affiliated with the University of California). Dr. Dunlap has worked from 2004 to the present at CRDF Global, an international science foundation where he serves as an Associate Program Direct overseeing four scientific foundations in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Moldova; teaching on authorship of research papers and writing grant proposals to national audiences in Algeria, Morocco, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Iraq, Turkey, Oman, Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Kazakhstan; and developing national programs for access to and publication of research articles in peer-reviewed journals in eight countries. Dr. Dunlap has taught and consulted on grant proposal writing at the University of Vermont, Vt, Burlington, USA, and Texas Tech University, Lubbock, Tex, USA.
