Nick Swanson-Hysell bio

I am an Assistant Professor of Earth and Planetary Science here at UC Berkeley. My research is focused on reconstructing conditions on the ancient Earth with a particular focus on using magnetic data from rocks to determine the past positions of continents. You can learn more at my website. I seek to us tools that facilitate open and reproducible data analysis. You can find me and my research group on Github.
