Rachel Havranek
Geological Sciences Lead
Lead Graduate Fellow 2021-22

My name is Rachel, and I am a 5th year PhD Candidate in Geological Sciences. My research is focused on better understanding how the hydrologic cycle is encoded into the mineral calcium carbonate both in modern soils and in fossilized soils. While at CU, I’ve taught Earth Materials for 4 semesters and Structural Geology for 2 semesters. I love teaching because I get to communicate why Earth Science is so cool and important to our lives!
