Jennifer Schmidt


I earned my Ph.D. in Earth Sciences from Lehigh University in 2018. I’ve published research on landscape evolution and tectonics, and have done field work in Tibet, Tajikistan, India, Norway, and the western U.S. While working toward my Ph.D., I held visiting faculty positions at Bucknell University and Wellesley College. I enjoy finding creative ways to teach people about science. I’m currently an NSF-funded Innovative Postdoctoral Entrepreneurial Research Fellow with Temblor, where I edit and direct Temblor Earthquake News.
