We are pleased to announce that Cathy Chamberlin will join the Heffernan Lab in Fall of 2015 as a PhD student in the University Program in Ecology. Cathy graduated Summa Cum Laude from Yale University in 2012 with her BA in Chemistry. Her honors research addressed the use of geochemical proxies for paleoclimatology and paleoaltimetry, and was based on field work in New Zealand. After graduation, she worked in a molecular biology lab focused on circadian rhythms (and then came racing back to environmental science!) She has also taught English in Russia through a Fulbright fellowship. Based on her outstanding accomplishments and potential, Cathy was awarded a James B. Duke Fellowship. Congratulations Cathy and welcome aboard!
