Geoscientist Profiles



Abe Padilla

My experience as a geoscientist has enhanced the way I look at nature, and makes my time spent outside that much more enjoyable!

    Geology is the only career I could think of that had the potential for so much travel to beautiful places, the ability to spend so much time away from the office, and still pays the bills!


      Ellery Richardson

      General Counsel, TDEC

      The scientific way of thinking and looking at the world will help you in whatever you do, whether it’s in the geosciences or not.


        Kirk Rodgers

        Hydrologist, US Geological Survey

        There is not a day that goes by that I do not learn something new. The geosciences offer that kind of life-long learning.
