Sarah’s first brachiopod find

Sarah impressed both the audience and her committee with her expert defense of her groundbreaking research uncovering the signal of GOBE diversification within articulated brachiopod communities of the American midwest. ¬†Congratulations, Sarah! You’ve come a long way from finding your first brachiopod in Oklahoma!

I’m excited to see what new scientific adventures are in store for you as you pursue your PhD at the University of Nevada, Reno.

In other news, Sarah also presented her thesis results at the Annual Ohio Academy of Science meeting and the Ohio University Student Expo during the past week, where she was awarded first place in geosciences. ¬†If you missed these exciting presentations, be sure to catch Sarah’s talk at the upcoming IGCP 591 meeting in Ghent, Belgium.
