Here are what a few of our alumni are doing post-stockton (More added regularly!)
Bethany Williams (May 2017): I am currently working with Southwestern Energy - a natural gas drilling and production company in Northeastern Pennsylvania and have been here for the past two years since I graduated. I work with waste, water, and spill remediation, and it's a pretty good gig. I just sat for my Geologist in Training test for PA in the beginning of October and will hopefully pass and work my way to becoming a Professional Geologist (PG) in the next couple years.
Christina Comuso (May 2017): Currently finishing her Masters in Geology at the University of Stellenbosch (South Africa) working with Dr. Bjorn Van Der Heyden. Her research has focused on understanding the nature of the ore-forming fluids at the Hope Reef and Main Reef Complexes of the Sheba and Fairview Mines within the Barberton gold District, South Africa. This has been accomplished through fluid inclusion analyses (petrography, microthermometry, and Raman analyses) and oxygen isotopic analyses. Her research was presented at the Society of Economic Geologist conference in September 2018 in Denver, Colorado.
Donald Maute (May 2017): Finished his Masters in Geology at Texas Tech University working with Drs. Callum Hetherington and is now working for Geosyntec Consultants. His research has focused on investigating a locality of Fe-Ti-Zr-REE-P mineralized zones on the Lofoten-Vesterålen archipelago in NW Norway through a textural, geochemical and stable isotope approach. Don spent a month doing field work in Norway and also spent a semester at the University of Trondheim/Norweigen Geological Survey conducting research there as well. "My undergraduate experience at Stockton was invaluable in preparing me for graduate schooI. I owe my thanks to Rocky and Dr. Mike Hozik for inspiring me to study geology – their enthusiasm for the subject is unparalleled."
Brian Freed (May 2017): "I am currently working for Arcadis, a national consulting company. I work as an environmental field tech, which is my company’s version of a consultant. I work on various jobs from treatment system O&M, ground water sampling, soil borings, and oversight for sub-contractors. My time at Stockton can be described as amazing. I could not have asked for a better place to lay the foundation and my love for geology and what you can do with the degree. Stockton gave me a chance to grow both academically and professionally through working on research and the friends I made there. What I got to do at Stockton has set me apart from other applicants in a way and is what got me my job at Arcadis. They could not believe the work I was able to be a part of as an undergrad and I can say happily that in my office I’m probably the only person with such a big background in geochemistry and petrology to the ends that I do have."
Drew Barkoff (May 2015): Currently a doctoral student at University of Nevada-Las Vegas working with Dr. Simon Jowitt. His current project is focused on providing a better understanding of the petrogenesis of evolved, A-type rhyolites in the western US and see whether these rhyolite deposits may represent exploitable low-grade, bulk tonnage sources of rare metals such as Li, Be, U, and the REE (HREE in particular). He finished his Masters at the University of Arizona working with Dr. Matthew Steele-MacInnis on a project that focused on determining pressure-temperature conditions of copper skarn formation in the Yerington District, Nevada. This paper was published in Geology in 2017 (https://doi.org/10.1130/G39177.1). "Stockton, and more specifically yourself and the close-knit group of students we had, provided me with my first opportunities to take part in scientific research. If it wasn’t for you and Mike being there pushing me to give research a shot, I am not sure I would have jumped at the opportunity. Because of these experiences, I was given the confidence, knowledge, and skills I needed to apply to graduate school, and so far my graduate career has been very successful. Stockton and its dedicated faculty deserve some of the credit for my personal success as I wouldn’t be where I am today were it not for them."
Dan Favorito (May 2014): Dan is currently finishing up his doctorate in Geosciences at the University of Arizona. He completed his Masters there as well, and has been working with Dr. Eric Seedorff for both degrees. All of his projects have revolved around extensive field mapping and structural analyses. His dissertation is focused on understanding the Laramide Orogeny in Arizona, specifically looking at the role of thick-skinned tectonics in during collision. His latest paper was published in September 2018 in Tectonics (https://doi.org/10.1029/2018TC005180). His Masters focused more on the relationship between extension, ore formation, and reverse faulting in southeastern Arizona and was published in Geosphere in March 2017 (https://doi.org/10.1130/GES01381.1).
