Shibu studied geology at the University of Montana and Universitaet Potsdam in Germany, graduating in 2016 with a Bachelor's in International Field Geosciences. He completed a minor in International Development Studies and did coursework in geospatial information systems. He’s a proud product of Missoula County public schools.
