Jessica Wick is a Geoscientist at the EERC, where she interfaces with a diverse team of scientists and engineers to assess project uncertainties in oil and gas development and geologic CO2 storage. Her work includes developing geophysical models of the subsurface, performing regional geological characterization and petrophysical analyses of geophysical well log data, and evaluating geologic core samples. She holds a B.S. degree in Geological Engineering with a specialty in petroleum from UND.

“It is great to be encouraged to learn and to ask about areas that I’m not an expert in. It has widely expanded my knowledge,” said Jessica. She was employed at the EERC as a student for 6 months in 2019, which she credits with her interest in joining our team full-time. “My time as a student showed me that the EERC is a place where you can grow and be a valued member of the team. The employees are friendly and truly care about each other.” 

Jessica grew up in a suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with two brothers and an adopted sister from China. Although she doesn’t have family in Grand Forks, she does have two dogs, two cats, a bearded dragon, and a snake. In her free time, she enjoys weightlifting, snowboarding, and traveling.
