Dr. Madison Myers is a second-year Assistant Professor in the MSU Department of Earth Sciences. Her research focuses on understanding where magma is stored in the crust, what triggers volcanic eruptions, and the timescales of volcanic processes. This year Madison will lead a group of Montana State students to the Philippines to study one of the largest eruptions that has occurred in the last 100 years, the 1991 eruption of Mt. Pinatubo. Additionally, work will begin in the summer of 2020 to update the Geologic Map of Yellowstone National Park. She received her M.S. in Geology from the University of Idaho in 2012 and Ph.D. in Geological Sciences from the University of Oregon in 2017.
