This week on The Graduates, tune in to hear from Elizabeth Niespolo, PhD Candidate in the Department of Earth and Planetary Science at UC Berkeley. As a geologist, Elizabeth studies the timing and tempo of human evolution using isotope geochemistry. In the interview, Elizabeth talks about her field work at fossil sites around the world, from Italy to Ethiopia, and discusses her undergraduate education in astrophysics and classics here at UCB.

The Graduates, highlighting graduate student research at Berkeley and around the world, is broadcast every other Tuesday at 9AM on KALX 90.7 FM and on the web at http://kalx.berkeley.edu.
