96 | theTYPEAhippie Podcast | ChiCast: Speaking Truth to Power (Jessica Kapp, PhD)

I came across Professor Jessica Kapp when I found out about a watchlist and that Dr Kapp was on said watchlist. I reached out to hear her side of the story.

Jess Kapp earned her PhD in geology at UCLA in 2004. Her research combined field mapping with U-Pb geochronology to study the history of the Nyainqentanglha mountain range in southern Tibet. Early on she discovered a love for teaching and is currently a senior lecturer and the associate department head in the department of geosciences at the University of Arizona in Tucson, where she teaches introductory geology and historical geology. She and her husband, a fellow geologist, have two young sons, ages 12 and 10. Jess writes fiction and non-fiction, and is currently finishing a memoir about how the death of her father, finding
geology, and her high-altitude field adventures in Tibet changed her life.
