Lyman Persico

Whitman College

Associate Professor of Geology

and Environmental Studies

I am an associate professor at Whitman College in Walla Walla, WA. I have a joint appointment in the environmental studies and geology programs. That means I like thinking about rocks, dirt, and water and how people interact with rocks, dirt, and water. I research how landscapes respond to climate change.
