Our Alumni

When they're here at WashU, our students apply geology, mineralogy, petrology, biology, chemistry, physics, and math to investigate diverse topics, such as early life on Earth, the structure of the Earth's deep interior, the nature of contaminant transport, and the evidence for water on Mars. As alumni, our graduates are uniquely poised to help solve some of society's most pressing problems through careers in government, non-profit organizations, academia, and industry. Wherever life takes them, we're proud of all our alumni and value the unique perspectives they bring to our WashU Earth and Planetary Sciences family.
