Bio for Dave Rodgers

Professor Of Geosciences And Associate Dean Of Science And Engineering, Idaho State University

I'm originally from Indiana, which is a fine state despite its lack of mountains. I studied geology at Carleton College, a small liberal arts college in Minnesota, and at Stanford University in California. Afterwards I moved to Pocatello to work at Idaho State University, where I've been for the past 25 years.

Idaho is a great place to live because geology is everywhere - it has volcanic plains, rugged mountains, and many geologic faults. My students and I mostly study the geology of Idaho, trying to understand how mountains rise and fall. Occasionally we travel to other places - Nevada, Utah, even New Zealand and the Middle East - to study other types of mountains.

When I'm not at work, I join my family on camping trips, coach youth soccer teams, and cross-country ski.
