Jane began teaching at the University of Pennsylvania in 2006 and currently is a senior lecturer in the Earth and Environmental Science Department. She’s taught math and physics at the high school level in California and New Jersey and college classes in earth science, environmental chemistry, oceanography, environmental case studies, research methods, and remote sensing. Jane’s past earth science research experience has spanned paleomagnetics and recent tectonics (during her BS at UC Santa Barbara), magnetic paleointensity, earthquakes, plate tectonics, volcanism, marine seismology, and remote sensing (during her MS and PhD at Caltech), to global seismology (fellowship in Brazil). Her current research at Penn investigates vegetation’s response to climate change using remote sensing imagery. Jane is passionate about the oceans, the environment, science education, teaching, and earth science.
