College of Wooster
I am a Professor of Earth Sciences at the College of Wooster. I teach an introductory course on Natural Hazards and upper-level lab courses on Earth Materials, Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology, and Geochemistry. My geoscience research uses the geochemistry of lavas to enhance our understanding of volcanic systems, primarily in subaqueous, subglacial, and rift-dominated environments. My education research focuses on undergraduate research mentoring and broadening participation in the geosciences. Find out more about me at my website: https://drmeagenpollock.voices.wooster.edu/.
