Isabel M. Fendley


I am currently an NSF Graduate Research Fellow at UC Berkeley, with an expected Ph.D. graduation date of summer 2020.

I use geochemical (Hg concentration, C, S, O stable isotope composition) and statistical techniques to probe the relationship between volcanic eruptions and environmental change on all timescales: from Large Igneous Province eruptions to recent eruptions.

I was recently a guest on the AGU podcast "Third Pod From the Sun" to talk about Mt. Etna and volcano-caused climate change during the early Roman Empire. Check it out!
