Student Spotlight

Christopher Martin

Christopher Martin is currently a MSc Candidate in Geothermal Geophysics at UNR. He is also currently associated with Great Basin Center for Geothermal Energy, Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology, University of Nevada, Reno.

Christopher has a BSc Engineering Geophysics, San Diego State University and SAGE -Summer of Applied Geophysical Experience, Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Christopher just recently joined NWRA as a student member due to a recent 2-day Geophysical Borehole Workshop that his geophysics professor emailed him. He found that he learned quite a lot about the water industry, especially with regards to drilling. He feels being a NWRA member can assist him with career and educational goals and that the information he received at the workshop is something that he can apply to his career as a geothermal geophysicist.

He feels students can best take advantage by being on the email list and see what workshops are available. As for NWRA Board of Directors, he would like to see them continue to target students pursuing careers in hydrology, hydrogeology and any science career that involves looking at water data from Civil Engineers to Environmental Scientists.
