Jonah Leurquin: “I am a senior geological engineering student and have worked here at CEETE for a few years now. I enjoy this work because I like working through problems and learning how to best teach science courses. As a student, I am interested in how we can use geophysics to learn more about geohazard protection. If you were to run into me on a random summer day I am most likely biking around Lake Mendota jamming to my summer playlists and eating an artisan PBJ sandwich.”
