About Gabi

Hi, I’m Gabi! I am a third 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 paleoclimate and U-Th series dating of paleo records. I got my BA in Earth and Oceanographic Science at Bowdoin College, where I worked with Michèle LaVigne on deep-sea coral geochemistry.

Outside of research, I like to spend time communicating science and helping other students learn to use social media for science.

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

PS: My name is pronounced GAH-bee, not Gabby, because my mom’s family is from Mexico and that is the pronunciation in Spanish. If you’re confused, ask me how to say it!
