Isabel Hong

Postdoctoral Fellow

Areas of interest

Isabel is interested in understanding the short- and long-term effects of relative sea-level change caused by geohazards in coastal environments. She uses sedimentary and microfossil diatom analyses and statistical modeling to reconstruct paleoenvironment over millennial timescales. Currently, she is a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow focused on exploring how the geologic record can be utilized to reconstruct a history of land-level change both during and in-between earthquakes along the Cascadia subduction zone.
