Nancy Duque

I’m originally from Los Angeles, in a little city called Lennox, which is 3.7 miles East (or 15 minutes) from LAX. We hear all the airport traffic! I grew up in a predominant Latino community and my curiosity with science began at the age of 8. I got really curious about my environment that I wanted to learn more about the processes that happen in our planet Earth. I grew up watching the weather news with my family, as weather was a great impact to us for certain family events, especially rain or hot sunny days since my dad works for a car wash. I had the privilege to attend the new Lennox Academy charter high school in my hometown and had excellent teachers that mentored me to pursue a science degree. I got my first BS in Physics, with a specialization in Atomic, Molecular and Optics at the University of California, Merced in 2013. I applied to UWM and started in Fall 2016 as a second BS student, majoring in Geology. Joining the Atmospheric Science Club gave me opportunities to meet people with similar interests. A year later took on the challenge to double major in Atmospheric Science and Geology, with a minor in Conservation & Environmental Science. Currently a research assistant for Dr. Czeck, doing a geochemical analysis & microstructural analysis on the Pulo do Lobo rocks. I’m also a tutor for the Geoscience 100 and Atmospheric Science 100 courses, as I feel many students struggle with science courses. I joined Innovative Weather in late of Fall of 2017 as an intern, which is an excellent opportunity to apply theory & research you learn in the classroom to what happens out there! In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend & cat. I like to catch up on TV shows, watching movies on Netflix or Hulu, watch cheesy scifi/horror movies on the Comet Channel, going to the movies, go hiking.
