Biography of Jahns Distinguished Lecturer- Deborah Green

I’ve worked as an environmental and engineering geologist for 34 years in consulting and industry. For more than 20 of those years I’ve been self-employed. I discovered my love for geology as a kid when my earth science teacher father informally taught me all sorts of things about rocks on our summer camping adventures. I earned a B.S. in geology from the University of Rochester and an M.S. in engineering geology from Texas A&M University.

These days, I spend most of my work time writing. I recently completed my first novel, which is loosely based on a period in my late husband’s life when he was the Chief Foundation Geologist for a large dam in East Central Turkey from the late 1960’s to the early 1970’s. On my website, www.geologistwriter.com, you can read essays in which I strive to understand and convey the wonder of the landscape and the complexity of earth processes, while also exploring the terrain of our lives.
