Grace studies ice sheets and earthquakes using whatever fun new tools she can get her hands on, and she is passionate about making geoscience equitable and inclusive for all.
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.

I am a seismologist working on volcanoes. I participate in IDEEAS to foster a community where every person feels valued and appreciated for their unique selves. In my free time I enjoy reading and hiking.
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.
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.
I am a first generation, genderqueer, neurodivergent Earth System Scientist. Through participating in IDEEAS I aim to help support, mentor, and foster an inclusive culture of belonging for other LGBTQIA+ and minority individuals in our community. Together I believe we can shape the future of STEM to be a beautifully diverse spectrum inclusive of everyone.
Hi, I’m Patricia, an unapologetic volcano nerd and geodesy geek, trying to peek inside volcano guts with InSAR and potential fields techniques. I’m participating in IDEEAS because I want everyone, especially those who have been historically excluded in the Earth Sciences, to feel safe and accepted in our department as their full selves. In my free time, I binge-watch soapy fantasy dramas, play the French horn (badly) in the Ithaca Concert Band, get distracted by everything on hikes in the woods, contra dance (when there’s not a pandemic on), and play computer games for longer than I probably should.
Building a community that is diverse, equitable and inclusive is the only way for Cornell EAS to be excellent and everyone needs to be involved to do that.
I study how changes in soil moisture and evaporite crystal growth affect remote sensing processing. I love being a geoscientist, but there is still so much room for improvement to create a truly welcoming and equitable community. It is not only an opportunity, but a necessity to make this field a safe space for everyone. In my spare time, I like to watch cartoons, sew, and play with my sassy pet bunny.
I am a climate modeler from Italy, currently researching at Cornell University. I study the effect of aerosols in the stratosphere. Before coming to the US, I married my wonderful husband – that was the only way for the both of us to be together, and we were one of the first gay couples in our city to get married! I would have never moved to the other side of the Atlantic without him, and it couldn’t have happened just one year earlier. I want to make our space a safe space for every LGBTQAI+ student and researcher out there.
