Group: 2014-15

Graduate Students:

Mr. Patrick Baldwin (B.S. UNC-Charlotte): Patrick's M.S. thesis project focuses on the stratigraphy and geochemistry of Pennsylvanian unconventional oil reservoirs in Texas. Patrick has also been invovled in paleolimnological research on Lake Tanganyika.

Mr. Patrick Ryan (B.S. U. Maine): Patrick's M.S. thesis project focuses on the stratigraphy and geochemistry of Pennsylvanian unconventional oil reservoirs in Texas.

Mr. Edward Lo (B.S. Louisiana State University): Edward's M.S. thesis project focuses on Holocene paleolimnology in the Pantanal wetlands. Edward is a graduate Fulbright awardee and will spend 2015 in Corumba (MS) with collaborators Aguinaldo Silva (UFMS) and Ivan Bergier (EMBRAPA). Edward is co-advised by Kevin Yeager.

Mr. Zac Perlman (B.S. Denison University): Zac's M.S. thesis project focuses on the stratigraphy and geochemistry of Pennsylvanian unconventional oil reservoirs in Texas. Zac is also conducting shale provenance research (rare earth elements) on Lake Malawi.

Mr. Joseph Lucas (B.S. Univeristy of Kentucky): Joseph is the Pioneer lab manager. Joseph's M.S. thesis research focuses on modern sedimentary processes, high resolution geophysics, and Quaternary paleoenvironments in Lake Tanganyika, East Africa.

Undergraduate Students:

Mr. Taylor Chapman (B.S. UK, in progress): Taylor's research project concentrates on palynofacies and organic geochemistry of Pennsylvanian unconventional oil reservoirs in Texas. Taylor's project is supported by our collaborator Cortland Eble at the KGS. Taylor won an Undergraduate Research Fellowship for his research in the Pioneer Lab.

Ms. Alyssa Eliopolous (B.S. UK, in progress): Alyssa's research project concentrates on stable isotopes and organic geochemistry of Pennsylvanian unconventional oil reservoirs in Texas. Alyssa's project is supported by our collaborator Cortland Eble at the KGS.

Ms. Vicki Oberc (B.S. UK, in progress): Vicki's research project concentrates on sedimentology and geochemistry of Holocene lake sediment cores from the Pantanal of Nhecolandia (MS).  Vicki's project is supported by our collaborator Renato Guerreiro at the IFPR. Vicki won an Undergraduate Research Fellowship for her research in the Pioneer Lab.

Ms. Meredith O'Dell (B.S. UK, in progress): Meredith's research project concentrates on developing major and trace element insights on paleoceanography of the Midland Basin during the late Pennsylvanian icehouse. Meredith is a Chellgren Fellow at UK.
