This is Farida Baxamusa, MS - Earth Science from Scripps Institution Of Oceanography (SIO), University of California, San Diego (UCSD). I am originally from India, and have another Master's in Earth Sciences from St. Xavier's College, University of Mumbai, India. I have also been granted the Dr. Ratan Nadirshaw Sukeshwala and Dr. Dayanand Dattatraya Yellur scholarship for securing highest rank in Earth Science at MS Part I and Part II. After completing my MS in India, I secured an internship at Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC), Mumbai, India. Later I worked as an Earth Science lecturer at St. Xavier's College, University of Mumbai, India where I held classes, directed discussions among large groups ranging from 35 to 80 students on mineralogy, petrology, geochemistry, crystallography, economic geology, oceanography, and plate tectonics and led lab courses involving mapping, stratigraphy, and paleontology. In September of 2013, I was accepted at SIO, UCSD for a master's program. Dr. Lisa Tauxe was my advisor and I worked as a research assistant under her in the field of paleomagnetism. I worked in the paleomagnetism laboratory where I skillfully selected quenched rock materials from lava flow samples to obtain accurate estimates of the Earth's magnetic field intensities. I developed python scripts to analyze individual samples to obtain their paleointensity values. I also worked as a teaching assistant for a year where I assisted teaching undergraduates introductory geology and Earth processes, collaborated with other teaching assistants and professors to aid in conducting an introductory course about hydrologic processes on Earth and held office hours, tutored students, proctored and graded exams. Around the time of completion of my degree I presented my year's research to the faculty members of the Geoscience Research Division (GRD) and qualified for my MS in Earth Science and graduated in September of 2014. I am currently doing 3 part time jobs, one as a Staff Research Associate at SIO, the other as a Staff scientist at the Bodhi Group where I perform phase I site assessments, and the third as a geology education website volunteer at California Coastal Commission Public Education Department, CA. I am now actively looking for a job in environmental consultancy firms or educational institutions.
