Jordan Wostbrock

Jordan Wostbrock joins Yale as Assistant Professor of Astronomy. She is a stable isotope geochemist who uses the triple oxygen isotope composition of carbonates, silicates, phosphates, and water to look at marine and terrestrial environments. She is currently focused on paleoclimate/environmental reconstruction, understanding how alteration affects the oxygen isotope composition of carbonates and silicates, and the development of new methods and proxies. She was a National Science Foundation-Earth Sciences (NSF-EAR) Postdoctoral Fellow at Yale in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences from 2021-2022. Wostbrock obtained her B.S. (2010) in Environmental Science at Westfield State College and her M.S. (2016) and Ph.D. (2020) in Earth and Planetary Sciences at the University of New Mexico.
