Dr. Jesse Zondervan
I am a geoscience research-trained geomorphologist working as a Postdoc at Durham University. I have a background in field geology, geomorphology, geochronology (OSL) and environmental sciences and have a particular interest in field geomorphology and spatial/topographic analysis as well as rock engineering, palaeoclimatology, neotectonics, geochemistry, geoarchaeology and science communication.
After graduating in geology from Imperial College, I pursued a PhD at Plymouth University. I have also worked at the Risø Nordic Centre for Luminescence Research in Copenhagen as a visiting PhD. Since March 2021 I am working on the ROC-CO2 project at Durham University as a postdoc.
I am involved in science communication and I am the Content Editor for Geology for Global Development (GfGD) .
