Danielle Santiago Ramos, *19 GEO

Assistant Professor, Department of Marine and Coastal Sciences, Rutgers University
Future Faculty Workshop Speaker

I am originally from Recife, a coastal city in the northeast of Brazil with a rich and vibrant culture. Following a short stint as a History major at home, I left Brazil in 2009 to pursue a college degree in Amherst College, MA, where I was exposed to and fell in love with the Earth Sciences. After graduating with a B.A. in Geology in 2013, I joined the Geosciences Ph.D. program at Princeton University under the mentorship of Dr. John Higgins. In 2019, I moved back to MA as a postdoctoral scholar to work with Dr. Sune Nielsen in WHOI’s Geology & Geophysics Department. Before joining the faculty at Rutgers in early 2022, I worked as a Lecturer in the Princeton Geosciences Department in Fall 2021.

"I look forward to sharing my experience as a Professor in a public R1 university with a diverse student body. The job comes with many challenges and rewards and I hope to open your eyes to academic possibilities beyond the Ivy League."
