Erin Campbell

Erin Campbell

Erin Campbell was appointed as Wyoming State Geologist and Director of the WSGS in 2017. She has a B.S. degree in geology from Occidental College and a Ph.D. in geology from the University of Wyoming, specializing in structural geology. She worked as a geologist for Chevron for several years in Louisiana and California before returning to Wyoming to teach at the University of Wyoming. During her 15 years at UW, she taught undergraduate and graduate courses, directed the Geology Field Camp, and conducted research in structural geology and geomechanics. She spent one year as the manager of the Energy and Mineral Resources division at the WSGS before being appointed as state geologist.

In her current position, Erin directs the WSGS, serves as a cabinet member for the governor of Wyoming, and is a commissioner for the Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission and the Enhanced Oil Recovery Commission. She is also a board member for the Wyoming Board of Professional Geologists and a member of the Wyoming Consensus Revenue Estimating Group.

In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her children, as well as camping, hunting, fishing, quilting, and weaving.
