My name is Jay Wellik. I am currently a Peace Corps Masters International (PCMI) student at Michigan Technological University with a focus on volcanology, risk perception, and hazard mitigation. During my 27 months with the Peace Corps (April '11 to July '13), I will be serving as an English Education volunteer in East Java, Indonesia (specific location t.b.d.). Working in this province provides me with a unique opprtunity to study both physical and social aspects of natural hazards in one of the world's most volcanologically active regions.
Additional pages on this website have more detailed information on current projects and research interests. If you work in the region and would like to know more about my research or suggest possible collaborations, feel free to contact me at the addresses to the right.
links on this site supply more information about Michigan Tech, the
PCMI program, and Indonesia. My Peace Corps chronicles
up-to-date happenings of life in Indonesia. Blog links for
other Michigan Tech PCMI students are also available via this site.
Michigan Tech links range from Geology department webpages to
information on life on the Keweenaw Peninsula. Indonesia
links provide some background information on the history and geology of
the country for the avid reader. Links to popular geology
websites and blogs are also provided.
