Title: Kati Bednar


Kati Bednar’s high school chemistry teacher encouraged her to look into the USGS, which has since led to a burgeoning science career as a Student Trainee Hydrologist.  She is currently a full-time geology and geography student planning to graduate this year with her B.S. in geology and certificate in GIS.  During her breaks from school, she gains a wide range of experience assisting USGS scientists studying groundwater, surface water, soils, gases, biological samples and greenhouse gases, while also utilizing her class training. 

Of her experiences with the USGS, Bednar says, “I love traveling to remote places that I probably never would have been to, if not for the opportunity to collect water quality samples and conduct other experiments. With the USGS I hope to fully gain an understanding of the hydrological issues that we are going to face in the near future, particularly those dealing with fracking and water quality.”
