Shasta Longo

M.S. in Geology


I am a Master's student studying under Dr. Philipp Ruprecht. I recently graduated this Spring with my B.S. in Earth Science at Montana State University in Bozeman. For my senior thesis at MSU, I analyzed bipyramidal and rounded quartz crystals to infer the magmatic conditions of the Yellowstone Huckleberry Ridge Tuff.
