Gui Guenther Aksit graduated from Ohio University with a B.A. in Anthropology and from the University of Washington with a B.S. in Earth and Space Sciences: Geology. At UW, she researched the geological evolution of western Anatolia during the Late Cretaceous and early Paleogene through detrital zircon geochronology and sandstone petrography. After graduating, she interned at the Cascades Volcano Observatory, researching the explosive eruptive histories of Glacier Peak and Mount Rainier.
Gui is currently working with Meredith Townsend on topographic controls of dike propagation in the San Juan volcanic field.
When she isn’t at the library or a coffee shop studying, Gui loves climbing, running, painting and nerding out about the latest sci-fi releases in print or on screen.
