Paula Bürgi

She/her

Hi I’m Paula! I am a graduate student in EAS, and my research focuses on using remote sensing data to better characterize surface deformation and properties. I am so excited to be a part of the collective push to create and build an equitable and inclusive culture within the EAS department and for the greater geoscience community. In my free time, I love collecting insects, cooking, and all winter-related activities.

My research focuses on using satellite radar remote sensing to study how humans affect plant and water resources. I am a passionate advocate for pushing geoscience to be more welcoming and equitable community, especially for the next generation of scientists. I like to spend my free time hiking, doing embroidery/knitting, and snuggling with my cat.

Elizabeth Eiden

She/her

Hi! I’m a graduate student interested in what we can learn about volcanoes using satellite remote sensing. I’m passionate about building inclusive and accessible communities and love being a part of the work IDEEAS does. In my free time I like to either get outside, work on a jigsaw puzzle or read.
