Welcome ACS Project SEED interns

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.

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.
