Every week, we’re going to take a closer look at one of our many experts. This week, we’ll be profiling Geoscientist Jennifer Young.
Jennifer Young gained an Honours degree in Geography from Edinburgh University, where her studies included a range of topics in both physical and environmental geography.
She subsequently undertook and completed a BSc in Geosciences with the UK’s Open University, which allowed her to pursue her interest in large-scale earth processes, such as plate tectonics, and earth systems, such as climate and oceanography.
Her course involved the preparation of a 5,000 word thesis on earthquake prediction.
