About UCMP : UCMP newsletter
Tidbits & Calendar, September 2014
This summer we celebrated the career of Dave Lindberg, past UCMP Director, Professor of Integrative Biology and now Emeritus Professor. Dave's life history and career accomplishments were center stage at a July retirement party organized by his former and current students. Dave's colleagues, friends, and family gathered to recognize his many contributions to the field of malacology and to the lives of generations of scientists. See a selection of photos from the party.
Welcome to new research associate Yael Edelman-Furstenburg from the Geological Survey of Israel who will work on Miocene foraminifera starting in December 2014.
UCMP welcomes postdocs Christopher Schmitt and Michaela Huffman to the Hlusko Lab. Chris will be teaching IB35ac this semester and is collaborating on quantitative genetic analyses of non-human primate phenotypic variation. Michaela, who completed her Ph.D. at The Ohio State University, will help develop a project studying human dental development, variation, and adaptation in the Americas.
Welcome to Giovanni Rapacciuolo, a postdoc in the Marshall Lab, who earned his Ph.D. at Imperial College, London. Giovanni will work on museum informatics in service of global change biology.
Welcome postdoctoral scholar, Jessica Bean, to the Understanding Global Change project. Jessica received her Ph.D. at UC Davis in geology (emphasis in evolutionary biology) with Geerat Vermeij, and was program manager for the NSF GK-12 Program at Bodega Marine Laboratory. Also currently an Anthropology Postdoctoral Researcher at UC Davis, Jessica studies gastropod growth patterns and isotopic signatures to determine the geographic sources of shell beads from the archaeological record of California. Jessica is no stranger to the UCMP, and previously worked with the CAL:BLAST program. Working with the Understanding Science team, she also developed the Scientific Process Mapping Program, an interactive journaling tool utilizing the Understanding Science Flowchart.
