Cosmogenic Nuclide Laboratory and Geomorphology Research Group

Donna Rizzo



Donna emerged from the University of Vermont Civil & Environmental Engineering Program in 1994, as the program's first Ph. D. student. Since then she has approached environmental engineering from a multidisciplinary perspective, collaborated with a number of geology projects and served on multiple thesis committees, as Associate Professor in the College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences. Donna is a modeler and stats whiz who loves working with noisy, incomplete data sets like the kind we seem to generate. She's been an indispensable collaborator and worked with many Master's students associated with the lab as they work to decipher patterns in their data.
