Raquel Bryant

Raquel Bryant is a paleoceanographer and micropaleontologist. Her research leverages the interscalar potential of fossil foraminifera to investigate earth system change during ancient intervals of global warmth. Raquel is a leader in integrating microfossil records and geochemical archives to understand how the ocean and its ecosystems respond to abrupt environmental change. She is also committed to cultivating leadership skills among Geoscientists and to fostering 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 a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow.
