Excited to have new PhD students Sarah Dendy and Mingfei Chen join the Conroy Lab!
Sarah (BA, UC-Berkeley) comes to us most recently from LDEO. Mingfei just received his BS from Peking University.
Melinda and I presented our research in Zaragoza, Spain this May at the PAGES Open Science Meeting. It was a great, rejuvenating conference, full of fantastic science. Melinda was also selected to attend the Young Scientist’s Meeting in Morillo de Tou. I stuck around afterward to attend the Iso2k meeting.
[Double] congrats to Melinda Higley, who is the recipient of both the Kirkpatrick Award for Outstanding Graduate Research in Geology and the Harriet Wallace Outstanding Woman Graduate Student in Geology Award! I’m a proud advisor.
I talked about Galápagos seabirds and marine productivity (Program in Ecology, Evolution, and Conservation Biology, UIUC), tropical Pacific stable water isotopolgues (Department of Earth, Environmental, and Planetary Sciences, Brown University), and climate change (United Methodist Women Spring Gathering) last month.
Up next: the PAGES open science meeting in Zaragoza, Spain. Can’t wait!
At the top of the list, I am excited to receive $110K from the ACS-PRF-DNI to launch a new research program investigating microbial controls on carbonate precipitation. Thank you!
I recently gave at talk at University of Iowa, and had a great time discussing water isotopes and helping to coax their Picarro back to life.
And, a new paper is out in EPSL on Tibet monsoon precipitation variability during the late Holocene.
New PhD student Allie Wyman has just joined the lab. Welcome Allie!
Also, a warm welcome to our new undergraduate researchers, Vinothan Sivapalan and Helena Igbo.
