Rafael Angel Jiménez received his Masters of Science degree in Hydrogeology from the Applied Geosciences program at the University of Pennsylvania in 2012. He graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2008 from the University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Urban Studies concentrating in Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning. Since 2010, he has been working with the Luquillo Critical Zone Observatory on various projects including deep critical zone drilling and most recently a geochemical model of redox reactions in two geomorphologically distinct watersheds. His general research interests are in mathematics, theology and biogeochemistry.
