Corina Cerovski-Darriau

Corina Cerovski-Darriau just graduated from University of California, Berkeley with a BA in geology and a minor in Peace and Conflict Studies. She was recently sponsored by the Geological Society of America to attend UNESCO’s International Year of the Planet Earth as the US Student Representative. She was selected based on her essay about minimizing the risk/maximizing the awareness of natural hazards. Corina enjoys working as a liaison between the sciences and public policy and feels it is a nice combination of her interests. She also looks forward to touring the nation’s capital, experiencing thunderstorms and fireflies, and hopefully seeing a little geology

Jillian Luchner

Jillian Luchner comes to us from Boston, MA by way of California where she is completing a second undergraduate degree in Geology at Humboldt State University. After receiving an initial degree in economics from the University of Rochester, Jillian worked with an Americorps*VISTA program in California’s Central Valley. There she became interested in helping local governments better understand issues of science. She now enjoys focusing on issues of hydrology, hydrogeology and all things water. According to Jillian, she also “loves a good bike ride, a good book and a good burrito.”

Laura Bochner

Laura is a rising junior at Lafayette College in Easton, PA and is studying Geology. Though she entered college as a pre-med biology major, Laura changed her major after taking field courses in Utah and Hawaii. Laura is interested in all issues surrounding the environment and geosciences, but she is especially interested in energy and climate change policy. At school, Laura has begun collaborative research with her Paleoclimatology professor on the intensification of Northern Hemisphere glaciation at the Plio-Pleistocene boundary. She has also been working with her hometown’s municipal Environmental Advisory Committee. Laura enjoys hiking, photography, and a good geology pun. She hails from the Pennsylvania suburbs and is excited about spending the summer in Washington, DC.

Elizabeth Landau

Liz comes to us from California, where she completed her B.S. in Geological Sciences at USC, and her MS, also in Geological Sciences, from San Diego State University. Liz is politically active and interested in a career in geosciences policy. She intends on staying in the Washington DC area to pursue her career, even if the weather is better in California.

Liz is currently the Public Affairs Manager at AGU. (8/13)

 

Sargon de Jesus

Sargon will graduate from Brown University with a Bachelor's degree in geoscience and comparative literature before coming to the summer internship. He plans to head back to Rhode Island to complete his Masters degree before considering a career in geoscience policy. He has conducted field work in Fish Lake Utah and Mt St Helens. Sargon is bilingual (English and French), proficient in Spanish and has acted in seven theater productions at Brown. He is originally from inside the Beltway and a graduate of Washington-Lee High School in Virginia.

Dave has just completed his sophomore year at Marietta College in Ohio where he is pursuing a Bachelor's degree in geoscience. He is originally from Fredonia, New York and is interested in becoming a petroleum geologist when he is finished with the internship. Dave spent 2 weeks in the Utah desert conducting field work with paleontologists and sedimentologists and then presented his work at a Geological Society of America meeting.

Paul J. Schramm III

Paul has just completed his Masters degree in geoscience at Notre Dame, after getting his Bachelors degree at Kalamazoo College in his home state of Michigan. After the internship, Paul intends to pursue a degree in environmental health, where he can use his thesis work on metal-water interactions to deal with human health issues that intersect with geology. He is also a roller coaster enthusiast and world traveler, who has studied for one semester in Cairo and visited many other far flung locations.

Rachel Bleshman

Rachel, sponsored by AGI and the American Association of Petroleum Geologists Foundation, has arrived for the furious finish of the 109th Congress, which will likely continue their work through the dark and cold days of December this year. Rachel graduated in May 2006 from Wesleyan University of Connecticut where she received a BA in Earth and Environmental Science. After four years of field trips and an exciting geological cross-country trip this summer, she is ready to experience how public policy and geoscience connect to affect our country.
