Jeanette Brass

Bachelors of Geology: May, '08

Interests: Glaciology, Paleontology, Mining Engineering

Worked in the Mineral Separation Lab since Fall '05 as a lab technician.

Personal Website

I am interested in continuing my education in graduate school studying glaciology, mining engineering, or paleontology in the Fall 08. I have been an education interpretive station volunteer at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, IL since the Spring 2000. I have experience in traversing, use of GPS, and geophysical database/ air photo interpretation in geological map and cross section construction and writing geological reports.

Richard Fisher

Bachelors of Geology: May '08

Interests: Hydrogeology, Geological Engineering

Worked in Mineral Separation Lab since Spring '06 as a lab technician.

I am interested in continuing eduation at graduate school in hydrogeology of geological engineering. I have experience constructing geological maps and cross sections. I have interpreted air photos, seismic data, and seismic databases. I have experience in constructing geologic reports.

Mark Kannen

Bachelors of Earth and Atmospheric Science Education: December, '07

Interests: Education, Enivornmental Sustainablity, Fluvial Geomorphology

Worked in Mineral Separation Lab since Fall '06 as a lab a technician.

I am obtaining an Earth & Space Science Education degree. In addition to geology and educational outreach, I have worked extensively with a team of aeronuatical engineers; an experience which culminated in a third place finish at an international competition. I wil be student teaching at West Lafayette High School in Fall '07. I relish both the friendships I have made and the knowledge I have learned while working in the Mineral Separation Laboratory and I look forward to sharing my experiences with others.

Kesler Krieg

Bachelors of Enviornmental GeoScience: December, '07

Interests: Engineering Geology, Hydrogeology.

Worked in Mineral Separation Lab since Summer, '07.

I am currently investigating graduate schools on the east coast or working full time. My repertoire of classes is extensive and has reached across a large portion of the sciences with a solid engineering base. Primarily, I would like to work for a private consulting firm in relation to engineering geology. In the past I have worked for a medicinal pharmacology lab, biogeochemistry lab and currently PRIME lab.

Joe Kutch

Bachelors of Geology: December, '07

Interests: Structural Geology, Basin Analysis, Sedimentary Stratigraphy and Petroleum Geology

Worked for Prime Lab since August 2005 as lab assisstant.

I am interested in obtaining full time work after graduation in either the petroleum industry or for a utility company. I would like to work in well logging or drilling and maintenance for a petroleum company or do emissions testing and chemistry for an electric utility company. I have had multiple field based geology and earth science classes, along with an internship with the chemical division of a coal buring power plant company.
