Bawi Sung and Nahum Gerezgher are both American Chemical Society Project SEED interns in our lab this summer. Bawi is studying Ordovician carbonates and Nahum is studying iron chemistry of a northern Indiana lake. Both are doing an awesome job.
Congrats to Fotis for winning a Sigma Xi grant!
Fotis did it again by winning a graduate research award from Sigma Xi.
Congrats to Fotis for his GSA Research Grant 2018
Fotis was awarded a GSA summer research grant. Nice job!
Here I am demonstrating some hi-tech equipment for viewing the Great American Eclipse. The School of Science’s Eclipse Viewing Party was a lot of fun.

Welcome visiting PhD student Mauricio Baldim!
Mauricio will join our lab group as a visiting scholar from the University of Campinas (UNICAMP), Brazil . He will to do geochemical analysis of Archean rock collected from Brazil.
Pub: Nature Scientific Reports, 2017
I’m so stoked that our lab group just published “Midcontinental Native American population dynamics and late Holocene hydroclimate extremes” in Nature Scientific Reports.
It seems like ages ago when we first collected our sediment cores from Martin Lake in 2013.
