Jennifer Rothfuss

Geology field trips and research have taken Jennifer Rothfuss from New Jersey’s Sterling Hill Zinc Mine to Alaska’s Matanuska Valley, with stops in between that include the Appalachian System and the Catskills.

She has also found valuable hands-on experiences through her participation in the French Creek Watershed Research Project with Professor Rachel O’Brien and semester-long research on aerobic microbes.

Fascinated by the past, Jennifer chose to complement her geology major with a history minor. “Both academic fields revolve around the history of the earth,” she says, “one in scientific terms, the other in human terms.”
