Ellyn Gestwick Huggins

Ph.D. Candidate, Geology She/her/hers


I am a Ph.D. candidate studying igneous geochemistry/petrology. My interests lie in connecting petrological observations to quantitative tools to understand the storage and transport histories of erupting magma. Field areas include the Alaskan Peninsula, my computer, and seafaring on cruises in the South Atlantic and offshore of the Alaskan Peninsula.
