Kathryn Schubel is a sedimentary geologist. She has done research on modern and ancient sedimentary deposits in Australia, western China, Italy, the Bahamas, and across the United States. She has been teaching courses in earth science, geology, and oceanic and atmospheric processes at the college and graduate level since 1996. She has also translated science for public audiences—creating exhibits for the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California. Kathy is inspired to share her love, understanding and appreciation of the natural world, both marine and terrestrial, with people of all ages and from all walks of life. She seeks to engage people through a variety of different modalities, including online learning, inquiry-based learning and creative exploration.
She received a MA and PhD from the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Johns Hopkins University, a MA from the Department of Geological Sciences at Binghamton University, and a BA with Honors from Oberlin College.
