I am a geologist, writer, traveler, and aspiring polyglot. I am currently a 5th-year PhD student in the MIT/Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Joint Program. I will obtain my doctorate in Marine Geology & Geophysics (with a Geochemistry focus) sometime in 2011. I have a B.A. double major in Earth Science and Arabic from Dartmouth College. One reason I write this blog is to maintain my sanity as I finish up my PhD. In the midst of much stress, long days in lab, and long nights writing thesis chapters, I write to remind myself of why I love geology. I also write to document some of my geological adventures and to share my love of geology with others.
Right, the fuel rod assemblies are burning emitting all kinds of radioactive goodies, and you're trying to convince me they're under control......"sure you're an engineer, and I sell snowballs in Alaska too !"
