Our group is dedicated for integrating Earth Science education with Chemical and Biological Sciences, and for promoting the next generation scientists from underrepresented groups with diverse cultural and research backgrounds. We host year long undergraduate research interns, summer REU programs, and high school teacher-student teams.
