Congrats to Roger Bryant for defending his research paper, “Depositional controls on the S-isotopic composition of framboidal pyrite in marine sediments” on March 24, 2016. Both of our grad students can hopefully now breathe easy with their orals behind them.
Congratulations to Jocelyn Richardson for passing her orals on March 4, 2016. She successfully defended her research paper, “Correlating the Spatial Distribution and Speciation of Sulfur associated with Sedimentary Carbonate Strata, with its Isotopic Composition using Coupled X-ray Spectromicroscopy and Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry.”
Cole is the new postdoc joining the lab, fresh off finishing his Ph.D. at Ohio State. Cole is interested in better constraining environmental and biogeochemical evolution over the Paleozoic.
This fall we have two new graduate students joining the lab: Jocelyn Richardson and Roger Bryant, both recent graduates from St. Andrews in Scotland.
Welcome to you both!
We are sad to see Dr. Catherine Rose, the department’s inaugural Fossett Postdoctoral Scholar, depart our lab after two very productive (and enjoyable) years. Catherine will begin her new position as an Assistant Professor at Trinity College Dublin this fall.
You will be sorely missed!
Congrats to our graduating seniors! We will miss lab members Dan Johnson, Beth Hoagland, Chris Thom, and Emily Wills.
Congrats to Dan Johnson & Beth Hoagland, who were both just awarded NSF Graduate Research Fellowships to attend graduate school. In the fall, Dan will be heading to Caltech and Beth will be going to Penn State. Both pictured below, enjoying their spring break in the Apennines.
New graduate students Jocelyn Richardson & Roger Bryant, both from St. Andrews, UK, will be joining us in Fall 2014. Looking forward to having them in lab!
Fike and Dr. Catherine Rose attended the ICDP-sponsored workshop on Drilling the Neoproterozoic, held at the British Geological Society in Keyworth. A lively discussion of Neoproterozoic strata, leading to possible plans to set up drilling programs in China, Brazil, and the White Sea in the coming years.
