Jon got his Ph.D. in 2015 from the University of California, Santa Cruz, where he worked on the tectonic, magmatic, and geomorphic processes that shape the landscape of the Central Andes. Before that, in 2007 he graduated with a B.S. in Geosciences from San Francisco State University and spent the next two years working at the Cosmochemistry Laboratory at UC Berkeley's Space Sciences Lab. He came to the USGS in 2016 as a Mendenhall Postdoctoral Fellow to investigate the linkages between glacial sedimentology, groundwater flow, and slope stability in northwest Washington State.
