Jake Hebert earned a B.S. from Lamar University, an
M.S. from Texas A&M University, and a Ph.D. from the
University of Texas at Dallas (all degrees in physics).
He studied optics at Texas A&M and was a 1995-96
Dean’s Graduate Fellow. His Ph.D. research involved a
study of the possible connection between fair-weather
atmospheric electricity and weather and climate. He
has taught at both the high school and university levels
and became a research associate at the Institute for
Creation Research in 2011, where his research interests
include climates before and after the Flood, cosmology,
and general apologetics.
