Elizabeth M. Niespolo


I am currently a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Berkeley Geochronology Center. I will begin a Post-Doctoral Fellowship at the California Institute of Technology in the Division of Geological and Planetary Sciences in November 2019.

As a recent Ph.D. in the UC Berkeley Department of Earth and Planetary Science, I am interested in anchoring Quaternary records to absolute timescales to assess correlations of local and global environmental changes to evolution and adaptation.

For more on the science of my past and current work, please see the research tabs.

How did I get interested in Geology and Geochemistry? What do I do? How did I get here? Read my interview with Scientific American, or my blog post with SWPS, or listen to my interview with the Graduates at KALX UC Berkeley, listed under my name!
