Biography

Current research in my laboratory has students involved in preparing plant specimens for biogeochemical analysis to test the hypothesis that the geological biomarker oleanane has a flowering plant origin. Students collect and prepare all materials, including GPS on localities. Then after the preliminary analyses use the results for produce abstracts and presentations for the IU Southeast student conference and a symposium at North American Paleontological Convention. We are finishing the analyses and will be writing a manuscript with undergraduate students co-author(s).
