Daniele is a geology instructor at the University of Oregon and is based in Bend. She studies volcanic activity and has focused much of her research on central Oregon volcanoes. When Daniele isn’t leading students into the field and sharing her research in the classroom, you might find her hiking, skiing or teaching other community members about the incredible volcanic landscapes that surround us.
