Councilor – Laura Guertin

GeoCUR Councilor Laura GuertinLaura Guertin is a Professor of Earth Science at Penn State Brandywine.  She first began serving as a GeoCUR Councilor in 2003.

“As Penn State Brandywine primarily serves as a two-year feeder school for science majors in the Penn State system, I work with freshmen and sophomores on undergraduate research projects.  Although underclassmen may not have the rich content knowledge to conduct a full-scale, rigorous research project, getting students in the research pipeline early is critical to developing skills such as data collection, library searching, quantitative analyses, etc.  No matter what field a student is majoring in, all of these skills are important to developing scientifically-literate citizens.”
