MEAS Department Seminar

November 15, 2021 | 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Speaker – Sarah Crump, University of California – Santa Cruz, hosted by E. Hyland.  Sarah Crump

Seminar Title – Ecological impacts of Late Quaternary climate change: New insights from ancient DNA in lake sediment

Bio –  Sarah Crump is an NSF EAR Postdoctoral Fellow in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department at the University of California Santa Cruz. Her research is aimed at understanding the environmental impacts of past climate change in Arctic and alpine settings by combining multiple proxies from lake sediments. In particular, she uses emerging ancient environmental DNA techniques to reconstruct past ecosystems, with a focus on warmer-than-present intervals and abrupt climate change events. Sarah received her BA in Geology from Carleton College and her PhD in Geological Sciences from the University of Colorado Boulder.
