Tamara Aranguiz

Graduate StudentB.S., University of Chile
Tamara is working on combining geodetic and geomorphology to study the Salar Grande fault system in northern Chile. She is co-advised by Alison Duvall.

Jessica Ghent

Graduate StudentB.S., University of Colorado
Jess is currently working on tracking ionospheric disturbances with GNSS from volcanic eruptions, most notably the 2022 Hunga Tonga Hunga Ha'apai eruption.

Jensen DeGrande

Graduate StudentB.S., Texas A&M Corpus Christi
Jensen is working on how to utilize GNSS-derived velocities for ShakeMaps and earthquake early warning. She is interested in machine learning techniques to improve the positioning accuracy of GNSS. She is co-advised by David Schmidt working on seafloor geodesy.
