Hannah Verboncoeur

Hannah Verboncoeur is a 2nd year EAS undergraduate major pursuing the research option with interests in glacial geophysics. Her early research focused on the geomorphological processes of the earth’s surface with Dr. Ken Ferrier, including chemical depletion in regolith, bedrock frost fracture, and knickpoint propagation. She has been a researcher in an NSF summer REU program and is currently preparing for a summer fieldwork position on the Juneau Icefield between Alaska and Canada, where she’ll be studying ice sheet geophysics using ground-penetrating radar techniques. When she returns, she will dive into glaciological research with Dr. Alexander Robel, learning as much as she can about the science she’s so passionate about. Hannah is a founding officer of Georgia Tech’s Earth science honor fraternity Sigma Gamma Epsilon, the EAS representative on the Undergraduate House of Representatives, and an active recruiter of prospective EAS students. In her spare time, Hannah is an avid foodie, adventurous traveler, and loves watching standup comedy. In the future, she plans to work towards her PhD and continue developing her career as a glaciologist.
