We are pleased to welcome Dr. Pedro Monarrez as a post-doctoral fellow and Jood Al Aswad, Michael Pimentel, and Cecilia Thomas as graduate students in the lab. [And we promise an updated lab photo, which is long overdue.]
Will received the Centennial TA Award from Stanford University this year for his contributions to several classes across his five years in the Department of Geological Sciences. Congratulations (and thank you) to Will!
Caitlin (Ph.D. '16) is currently working as the GSA-USGS Congressional Science Fellow in the office of Senator Tom Udall (D-NM). She published a piece in GSA Today this month (pg 50) describing the contributions that a geologist can make to science policy in Washington. It is a terrific piece and not too long. I urge you to read it!
The most recent publication to which we contributed, led by Malin Pinksy at Rutgers, is featured on the cover of Nature this week.
Combined effects of warming and hypoxia explain the severity and biogeography of end-Permian extinction in the oceans. See also a Perspectives piece by Lee Kump and coverage in the New York Times, among other outlets.
