About Me

Hi, I’m Gabi!

I am a fourth year PhD student in Marine Geology and Geophysics in the MIT-WHOI Joint Program. My primary research is in the MIT McGee Lab, which focuses on ancient climate records. Before grad school, I earned my BA in Earth and Oceanographic Science at Bowdoin College.

I am passionate about science communication in all formats. I mostly focus on writing, but I’m also getting started with videos! I recently started a series of short videos where scientists try to answer tough questions, called Stump a Scientist. I would love to collaborate on any scicomm project – feel free to get in touch with me!

Want to see what I have been up to lately? Follow me on Twitter and Instagram or read my recent writing! My academic CV is available here, and my scicomm CV is available here (both updated Spring 2018). You can also see what upcoming events I will be speaking at here.

I am available to give talks or facilitate workshops on social media, communicating about climate, or addressing issues of accessibility in STEM for people with disabilities.

Pro-tip: My name is pronounced GAH-bee, not Gabby, because I’m Mexican-American and that is the pronunciation in Spanish. I use both of my last names, without a hyphen!
