So I'm curious: what area of geoscience do you study, and where do you study it? What is your background and what is your general story?
My name is Gerrit Holl and I work as a researcher at the German Weather Service (DWD). My PhD was on atmospheric remote sensing of ice clouds, using scientific and operational satellites, and my current work is to prepare the weather service for the next generation of geostationary satellites. I have a broad interest in Earth sciences but a particular interest for the science of the atmosphere of Earth and other planets.
I'm Scott. I am finishing up an MSc in geology and will be focusing on computational geodynamics for my PhD starting this fall quarter. My interests are far in wide, but most notably the modeling of dynamics at tectonic margins. I'm currently developing on CitcomS, but will be switching to ASPECT.
My name is Brian Knight, and I have a MS in Geological Sciences from The University of Texas, USA. My career has moved into software since graduation, but I still remain interested in a variety of topics such as geomorphology, meteorology, petrology, and climatology.
It's always great to be part of a group with such diverse backgrounds.
I studied archaeology in Plzeň, Czech Republic, and I work as a freelancing expert on computer (mostly GIS and database) applications in archaeology. Czech archaeology is very focused on our small central-european sandbox, but I've learnt few interresting details on broader history, and even few things from earth sciences. Hope I will be able to help the community with that!
I'm working on a Ph.D. in physics at the University of Florida and expect to graduate at the end of summer. I've never formally studied earth science beyond the high school level, but I am an outdoor enthusiast and avid rock collector. The largest piece of art in my house is a 5' x 8' geologic map of the United States with a separate 5' x 3' legend.
My name is Drew, and I have a BS in Atmospheric Science from the University of Utah. I am an operational meteorologist with the US National Weather Service/NOAA. I'm primarily interested in meteorology, air chemistry, hydrology, climatology, geology, biogeochemistry, remote sensing, computer modeling, statistics and general computer science.
I am not a huge weather nerd despite my occupation. I find meteorology as equally interesting as my other pursuits.
My name is Damien, I have a PhD in Atmospheric Radiation Physics (Ultraviolet). But, I am also qualified as an Economic Geologist and Climatologist.
Currently, I work in a high school, teaching senior Physics, Chemistry, Maths and do Science Outreach to all, young and old. I am also an Adjunct Lecturer for a major Australian University - where I still pursue research in the applications of smartphone image sensors for atmospheric research (see my profile for my ResearchGate link).
I am a volcanology-nerd, have been since I was a kid - apparently my first word was 'lava'
My real name is Zack Brink, and I'm an 8th grader at Robious Middle School. :) I'm a curious learner, and I love Stackexchange! I can be sort of naive when it comes to accepting answers, but I make sure to do research on the answer before accepting it for that reason. :D
I'm hoping to become a biologist when I grow up :)
My Name is Daniel, I did my PhD in Atmospheric Science (atmospheric chemistry) at the Helmholtz Center Geesthacht and the University of Hamburg, Germany.
I did some minor research on marine litter in the past. Currently, I work as PostDoc on atmospheric impacts on marine biogeochemistry at the Leibniz-Institute for Baltic Sea Research.
My focus is more on technical aspects like modeling and data processing.
I am Aureliano, I own a couple of patents related to High Pressure - High Temperature wells useful to oil production, as well as shale and geothermal activities, not mentioning uranium production. I am a born German-speaker, but most of my activity happened in SE-Asia, where we drilled horizontal wells up to 5km long.
I have a degree in physics, then further education in rock mechanics and energy production.
I am impressed by how much oil&gas we burned in the past 150 years and how little we achieved.
