Brenda is an interdisciplinary geoscientist who received a B.S. and M.S. in Earth Science from the University of California, Santa Cruz and a Ph.D. in Geology from the University of Utah where her doctoral research focused on the history of fluid flow in the Navajo Sandstone. She worked as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Central Michigan University studying the geochemical evolution of acidic brines in southern Western Australia, and then began a position as a faculty member in the Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences at Purdue University. She returned to Utah as a faculty member in the department of Geology and Geophysics in 2012. Dr. Bowen has over 35 publications that focus on how changing environmental conditions influence the composition of sediments, authigenic minerals, and fluids in both modern dynamic surface systems and ancient lithified strata. Current projects are focused on geologic CO2 sequestration, structural diagenesis and fluid flow, links between biology, geochemistry, sedimentology, and human activities in extreme environments including the Bonnevile Salt Flats. In addition to her geologic research and teaching, Dr. Bowen is also the Director of the interdisciplinary Global Change and Sustainability Center at the University of Utah where she is actively working to develop interdisciplinary academic programs that address critical issues related to understanding global change and creating sustainable solutions.
