My name is Jazmin Scarlett, a PhD student in Earth Science specialising in Historical and Social Volcanology. I have recently passed my viva (defence). I combine the fields of anthropology, historical geography, social psychology, disaster management and volcanology to better understand how people live in their volcanic environment, because I have never been one to be straightforward.

You will find things related to my PhD work on the historical impacts of the volcano La Soufriere on the Caribbean island of St. Vincent, other academic musings involving social and historical volcanology and recently a sub-series in reviewing the representation of volcanism in videogames.

  1. Hi Jazmin!
    I’m a college student who has dreamed of a career in volcanology since I was five! I’m in a geology class this semester and we are doing a project on international geoscientists, and technically we’re supposed to choose off of a list but I thought it would be super neat to do an interview with a badass-woman-volcanologist like you! Let me know if that would be an option?

  2. Hi Jazmin Scarlett

    Your Blog is really interesting. I am also looking at going into a career in volcanology, having completed a degree in environmental hazards and disaster managment.

    I would recommend reading eruptions that shook the world by Clive Oppenheimer it combines the scientific and social elements of volcanology expertly.

    I was wondering if it would be possible to contact you regarding adivice about how you have found studying volcanology and the route you took to study your Phd?
