Lauren Shumaker
Graduate Voice & Influence Program Fellow 2015-2016, Environmental Science

Lauren Shumaker is a fifth-year PhD candidate in the Geological Sciences department. She received a B.A. in Earth Sciences and Anthropology at the University of California, Santa Cruz.

Lauren’s research at Stanford focuses on the transport of sediment in the deep ocean, from the perspective of both modern and ancient systems. Using a combination of fieldwork, geochronological dating, and subsurface analysis, she investigates topics ranging from the characteristics of individual submarine flows to the multi-million-year record of deep-sea processes preserved in sedimentary rocks.
