Liz graduated from the University of Washington in 2012 with a B.S. in Oceanography, focusing on marine geology and remote sensing techniques. Her thesis, "Investigating changes in channel complexity across the coast zone of Baja California," examined the effect of long term erosional processes on a network of rivers and submarine canyons in Mexico.
For the past three years, she has worked as a geophysicist for C&C Technologies, a hydrographic surveying company. Operating out of their Seattle office, Liz had the opportunity to work across the United States and internationally on a variety of geophysical and conventional surveys.
Currently, she is pursuing a Master's in Earth Sciences with a focus in Ocean Mapping. She is interested in combining high resolution multibeam bathymetry with water column visualization to study oceanographic issues linked to changes in the climate and environment. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, reading, eating, and baking pies.
