Margaret Cysewski, PhD student, University of Alaska Fairbanks
I was raised in Fairbanks and became fascinated with permafrost during my undergraduate in Civil Engineering at UAF. I earned my Masters in Arctic Engineering and currently working on my PhD in Permafrost Engineering. My research is writing about human interactions with permafrost, both in the past and in the future with climate change. I was an intern at the U.S. Army Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) for several years, where I helped excavate the expansion of the Permafrost Tunnel. I gained interest in teaching permafrost through the dozens of Permafrost Tunnel tours I have given. I have always had a love of learning to fulfill my curiosity. I also like to travel and explore. I am excited to share the hidden world of permafrost that exists all around Fairbanks.
