Raquel Bryant

Raquel Bryant is a paleoceanographer and micropaleontologist. Raquel is a leader in integrating microfossil and geochemical archives to understand how the ocean and its ecosystems respond to intervals of global warmth in the geologic past. Her research leverages the interscalar potential of fossil foraminifera to detect earth system change at the individual and community level. She is also interested in developing new methods to cultivate leadership skills among Geoscientists and foster radical earth-learning environments.

Dr. Raquel completed her BA in Geology and Biology at Brown University. She holds an MS and PhD in Geosciences from University of Massachusetts, Amherst where she was a Randolph and Cecile Bromery Graduate Fellow and an NSF Graduate Research Fellow. She completed postdoctoral training in the College of Geosciences at Texas A&M University as a Geosciences Future Faculty Fellow.
