Sean Thatcher


My name is Sean Thatcher and I am an experienced land surface scientist that investigates changes in the coastal zone. I am also interested in promoting access and inclusion within the geosciences and am highly involved with the International Association for Geoscience Diversity to dismantle barriers to equitable access. My favorite part about my job is working with students and assisting them to apply to opportunities to enhance their educational experience and promote professional development.
