Former committee executives

Professor of metamorphic geochemistry (UNIBE) & scientific collaborator (UNIL)

Daniela investigates the timing and dynamics of geological processes using age, elements and isotope zoning in minerals.

“I am passionate about GEODES because, like all precious and fragile values, diversity and equality need to be nurtured and advanced.”

Post-Doctoral researcher (UNIBE) 

Alannah researches petrophysical and geochemical flow pathways in ore deposit systems.

“I believe GEODES can improve gender equity and minority diversity in Swiss Geosciences through guided discussions and best practice workshops.”

Post-Doctoral researcher (IDyST, UNIL)

Chloé field of study is sedimentology and field geology, and she’s currently working on the Quaternary tectonics of the Himalayas with luminescence thermochronometry.

“GEODES is important to promote and support equality in geosciences. Everyone should have an equal opportunity to pursue a career without being discriminated for who they are.”

“We would like to promote respectful and inclusive workplace culture in the Swiss Geoscience community. With its strong commitment to diversity and equality, GEODES provides us with such a platform.”

SNSF professor (UNIBE)

Andrea’s field of expertise is geophysics and rock magnetism.

“GEODES is important because… everyone should have the opportunity to follow their dreams.”

PhD student (UNIBE)

Joana’s field is petrology and geochemistry.

“GEODES for a more unbiased, healthy and sustainable environment in academia, and science in general”

Post-doctoral researcher (Unil)

Julien’s expertise is mineralogy and water in nominally anhydrous minerals.

“I am here because I do believe that diversity is a strength for Science”

PhD student (UNIBE)

Elena’s field is geomorphology and quaternary geology.

“GEODES because everyone in academia should feel welcome and safe.”

Laboratory assistant (ETH Zurich)

Giulia is a geologist, focused on landscape analysis, Quaternary glacial geology and geochronology. Currently she works in the Radiocarbon Dating field at the Laboratory of Ion Beam Physics (LIP), ETH Zürich, in collaboration with the Anthropology Unit of Geneva University.

“I joined GEODES because working in a multicultural and inclusive atmosphere is my joy and everyone has the same right to pursue and fulfill her/his dreams.”

Assistant professor (UNIL)

Georgina’s expertise is quaternary geochronology applied to geomorphological research. More here.

“GEODES is important because of the profound lack of gender equality and diversity in geoscience in Switzerland, and in geomorphology more generally.”
