NEW FACULTY PROFILE
Annie Bauer, Assistant Professor
Welcome Annie, who teaches courses in introductory geology, isotope geochemistry, crustal evolution, and geochemical analysis. “I am especially excited to develop a class, “How to Get a Date: The Use and Abuse of Geochronological Data,” focused on properly obtaining and evaluating chronological constraints for key events in Earth history. I will also be focused on promoting racial and gender diversity in the geosciences via the departmental Diversity and Inclusiveness Committee. I hope to interface with undergraduate and graduate students and ensure that we are able to effectively promote an inclusive environment in our department and engage more diverse future generations of geoscientists.”
Geo-Badgering: Student Updates
Geo-Badgering is a blog run by graduate students at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. It draws on contributions from graduate and undergraduate students in the Geoscience Department, and aims to cover a broad range of topics, from communicating scientific research to a general audience, to sharing field experiences, to answering those deep questions about what an earth science education is really all about! We hope that the experiences shared here will foster a stronger community within the department, and allow for broad impacts to be made by our work and experiences!
We are looking for short blog posts (200 to 600 words) about scientific research, lab work, field experiences, internships/industry experiences, and student life in general.
Please fill out this form, add a photo or two, and email it all to firstname.lastname@example.org.
