How David Burtt got involved with U.S. Geological Survey
I found out about both USGS and the internship program that they run through an old family friend who works at the Survey.
One thing I'll remember is getting to visit the Stanford Linear Accelerator and seeing the inside of the synchotron lab there.
David Burtt's accomplishments
I've submitted an abstract for my first paper and I've explored certain aspects of diatom research and geochemical analysis.
David Burtt's next steps
My goal is to go to graduate school and have the opportunity to explore geology in outer space through Space X, Virgin Galactic, or a similar organization.
