JRZondervan_CV_long.pdf

I have a background in field geology, geomorphology, geochronology (OSL) and environmental sciences and have a particular interest in leveraging emerging technologies to drive biological geoengineering solutions (biogeoengineering or terraforming).

I have previously worked across disciplines such as field geomorphology and spatial/topographic analysis as well as rock engineering, palaeoclimatology, neotectonics, geochemistry, geoarchaeology and science communication.
