Locatelli was the 2016-2017 American Geosciences Institute’s William L. Fisher Congressional Geoscience Fellow/AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellow, working in the office of Sen. Tom Udall of New Mexico. One thing this fellowship taught her is that humor is vitally important when working in a high-stress and nonstop environment like Congress. After all, who doesn’t love a gneiss joke? The views expressed are her own.
