March 2018 Luncheon

Dr. Jeni McDermott - Solving a Norwegian Geological Mystery

Dr. Jeni McDermott, originally from California, received her M.S. in hydrogeology from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and her Ph.D. in geology at Arizona State University. She taught geology for two years at Colgate University in upstate New York before beginning at the University of St Thomas in 2013. Jeni's research interests lie in understanding how fluvial systems interact with and shape our world, both at the orogen scale through the interplay between surface processes, deformation, and tectonics, as well as at a smaller scale where surface water and groundwater dynamically interact with our human environment. This interest has drawn Jeni to Norway where she hopes to "read" the rivers to reveal what tectonic motions caused that country's mountainous terrain.

and advance the organization's motto,
women who swim against the current. 


Lakselaget holds monthly luncheons where
members gather to network, share news, and
take part in a traditional Norwegian meal
of salmon, potatoes and cucumber salad.
