Dr. Nick Pollock joined the faculty at Westminster College in the Fall of 2020 as an Assistant Professor of Honors and Geology. Prior to Westminster, Nick completed his PhD in Geosciences at Boise State University where he specialized in the geologic hazards related to volcanic eruptions. This research involved both field-based and laboratory-based projects in the Pacific Northwest, France, Greece, and Chile. More recently, Nick's research focuses on the geologic hazards local to Salt Lake City and its position along the Wasatch Front: landslides, debris flows, and snow avalanches. Nick is excited about directly involving Westminster students in research to help them develop essential skills for careers in science following graduation.
