Lauren Neitzke Adamo

Lauren received her PhD in Geological Sciences at Rutgers University studying deep-sea sediment cores offshore Greenland using stable isotope stratigraphy to examine the changes in ocean circulation and climate over the last 20,000 years. In 2009 she began to work as a science communicator and the Associate Director (and now Director) of the Rutgers University Geology Museum, working to revamp and update the museum’s educational and outreach activities. She also teaches in the department of Earth and Planetary Sciences and recently took on the role as the Undergraduate Program Director.  All of her university roles allow her foster connections between students, educators, and researchers to help create better informed citizens through more effective geoscience education in the formal and informal classrooms.
