Jennifer Kasbohm is an NSF Earth Sciences Postdoctoral Fellow in Yale’s Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences. She is an Earth historian who specializes in finding the timing and duration of Earth’s most voluminous volcanic events. Jennifer became captivated by geology during her undergraduate study at Yale and recently completed her PhD at Princeton. During her PhD, she obtained new ages for the Columbia River Basalt Group (CRBG), the formation targeted for geologic sequestration by the CC Lab’s TrapRock project. Jennifer is currently pursuing postdoctoral research on how the CRBG volcanic eruptions affected Earth’s climate 16 million years ago, and is excited to also be advising the CC Lab on the regional geology, volcanology, and carbon storage potential of the CRBG.
