Urbino Summer School in Paleoclimatology

After attending USSP as a master's student in 2005, I returned to Urbino as an instructor in 2016. 

Lecture content covered the Pliocene to Pleistocene transition including describing El Padre conditions of the equatorial Pacific and Northern Hemisphere Glaciation. 

I also presented a discussion on gender diversity in geoscience. This discussion covered the implicit associations we all have related to gender including evidence-based biases in recommendation letters and co-authorship.


Undergraduate Research

Having the opportunity to mentor research projects in Earth science that I care deeply about is what makes teaching exciting and invigorating.
