Michelle LaGarde


Boozhoo. My name is Michelle and I am an enrolled member of the White Earth Band of Ojibwe! I graduated from the University of Minnesota, Morris with bachelor degrees in Environmental Science and Geology. I am currently pursuing my M.S. in Earth Science at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.

My thesis work entails studying slump formation in lake sediment by conducting experiments at the Saint Anthony Falls Laboratory (SAFL). I am co-advised by Emi Ito and Chris Paola.

I’m still figuring out what I want to do after I graduate.
