Cool Science Radio Welcomes Volcanologist and Natural Hazards Expert Jess Phoenix

jess.jpg

On Cool Science Radio, Lynn and John talk with Jess Phoenix, a woman who finds adventure in science.

Her book is called Ms. Adventure, My Wild Explorations in Science, Lava, and Life. 

As a volcanologist, natural hazards expert, and founder of Blueprint Earth, Phoenix has dedicated her life to scientific exploration.

Her career path— which has been hard-earned in the male-dominated world of science—has led her to flowing Hawaiian lava fields, congressional races, and numerous pairs of Caterpillar work boots.
