Michelle Coombs has been a research geologist for the USGS Volcano Hazards Team in Menlo Park since July 2001. Originally from Maine, she received her B.A. from Williams College in 1994. She completed her Ph.D. in geology from the University of Alaska Fairbanks in 2001, where she worked with John Eichelberger and studied shallow magmatic processes beneath the volcanoes of Katmai National Park. Her current work at the USGS focuses on Hawaii volcanism, including the growth of Kilauea and magmatic degassing during submarine eruptions.
