September 29th at 3:00pm EST
Mel is a graduate student at the University of Colorado, Boulder, where she studies the seismology of subduction margins where slow slip events ("slow earthquakes") have been observed. She's interested in the interactions and impacts between geohazards and people, and pursue research which has the potential to benefit communities vulnerable to such hazards.

This series is intended to connect middle and high school students and classrooms that are now in the virtual/remote learning landscape with scientists. Each webinar features a 10-15 minute presentation by a scientists about how they got into science, what they do as a scientist, and what it is that they research, followed by 10-15 minutes of live Q&A.
