Hey, I’m Liz! I’m a Maryland native pursuing a degree in Geology at Queens College, CUNY. I’ve previously been involved in research dating zircon grains for a study, performing petrological analyses of chondrite meteorites with an SEM, and using satellite data to explore the geochemical evolution of a region on Mars. My long term goal is to obtain a Ph.D in planetary science and work in research. On Visions ’18 I hope to work closely with the crew, gain experience with the on-board instruments, take part in cutting edge science, and witness the amazing and eerie world of Axial Seamount. Participating in Visions ’18 will be a wonderful opportunity to gain hands on experience on a working oceanographic vessel. I’m looking forward to an amazing experience this summer on the R/V Roger Revelle!
