Hello! My name is Saba Asefa and I am one of the Science Communication interns at Rocky Mountain National Park this summer. I am originally from Columbus, OH and have had a love for geology and the outdoors since I was a child. I went to Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN for Earth & Environmental Sciences because I wanted to gain skills and learn more about geology and environmental sciences. While in undergrad, I did research looking at volcanos in Iceland. Then I moved to Bellingham, WA for a Geology Master’s program at Western Washington University. My thesis project was about gauging air pollution using leaves as biomonitors in Seattle. I recently graduated this Spring and look forward to a rewarding and exciting summer working in Rocky Mountain National Park!
