Jacqueline trained as a petrologist and volcanologist at Carleton University (BSc, Hons) and the University of British Columbia (MSc), Canada and worked for mining companies in Canada and Australia. During her Masters, she began working with the Carl Wieman Science Education Initiative [http://cwsei.ubc.ca/] and re-developed a 200-level mineralogy course. From here, she transitioned to researching geoscience education full time and completed her PhD at the University of Canterbury, in New Zealand where she researched geoscience and hazards education. She’s completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Canterbury working on the teaching of risk communication [https://akoaotearoa.ac.nz/improving-science-communication-skills] and now holds a role at Victoria University of Wellington (New Zealand) researching academic resilience (i.e., the ability of learning and teaching to be resilient to emergencies), (geo)science communication, open education and practitioner engagement with crisis communication best practice.
