Elizabeth Schaeffer hasn’t followed the most straight-forward route into the geosciences but that’s allowed her to discover the field she most wants to study. She’s a non-traditional undergraduate studying applied geology and talks about recent internships she’s done that have sparked her interest in volcanology as well as the small but growing field of glacio-volcanic interactions. She also discusses the challenges of being an older student and encourages others to go after every opportunity they can. (Recorded 13 December 2018)
