Jess Kapp completed her PhD at UCLA in 2004. Her research combined field mapping with U-Pb geochronology in zircons to study the history of the Nyainqentanglha mountain range in southern Tibet. Early on she discovered a love for teaching, and is currently a senior lecturer in the Department of Geosciences at the University of Arizona, where she teaches introductory geology and historical geology. She and her husband, fellow geologist and mountain man extraordinaire Paul Kapp, have two young sons who are following in their parents’ adventurous footsteps, from rock climbing on Mt. Lemmon to surfing the north shore of Kauai, Hawaii. Jess writes fiction and non-fiction, and is currently finishing a memoir about her high altitude field adventures in Tibet. You can find her on her website, on Facebook, Twitter, and on the Huffington Post.
