Marika Stauring ’24 is a double major in Anthropology and Geology, interested specifically in bioarchaeology and studying environmental disasters.
Michael K. Yirenkyi, '22, has a major in Art & Art History and a minor in geology. His interests are in architecture and design and he aspires to work in the industry. His curiosity to challenge the accepted design of our built environments led him to pursue this summer project to explore how space impacts our experiences, habits and behaviours, and our views in life. This is what architectural phenomenology is about. After completing this summer project, he continues to read literature on the topic and is looking to pursue these interests in a graduate program next fall.
Gretchen Wambach '21 is a Geology and Business in the Liberal Arts major. She is interested in Geographic Information Systems(GIS) and environmental geology, as well as renewable resources and environmental economics. This project served as an introduction to some of the uses and implications of GIS.
Gretchen's summer work will be used as part of her senior honors thesis, where she will discuss the further implications of this project's findings in the geologic world.
Krista Walrath ‘21. Krista is a senior at St. Lawrence, originally from Fort Covington, NY (1-hour NE away). She majors in geology and has been interested in learning more about bivalves, both prehistoric and present, since taking paleontology with Dr. Nagel-Myers. Krista has been working closely with Dr. Nagel-Myers since the fall of 2019, learning the computer skills of landmarking and using morphometrics. These skills have adequately prepared Krista for her summer fellowship. Krista plans on using this research as a building block for her SYE.
Eloise Bellingham is a student at St. Lawerence University graduating in the class of 2021. She is majoring in Geology and Global Studies and is interested in studying hydrogeology and environmental policy and land use. This project will continue in her senior year research and in other academic studies. From Colorado Springs, Colorado she hopes that this project provides helpful information on the states rivers and surrounding lands.
Claire Bartlett is a senior at St. Lawerence University graduating in the class of 2021 from Potsdam, New York. She is majoring in Geology and has concentrated on environmental sociology and art outside her major. She plans on pursuing her master's degree in Geology, and is interested in geomorphology and hydrogeology. This project will continue in her senior year research and will be presented at the 2020 Geological Society of America Conference online in October.
Anuva Anannya, '22, is a Geology major and Anthropology minor at St. Lawrence University. She is planning to pursue Planetary Science in graduate school and later career. This interest led her to conduct a project on the contribution of clay minerals in Martian mass movements last summer. She continued this project during Summer 2021 with Helen Eifert '18 (who is now doing her PhD in Planetary Science in Northern Arizona University) and under the mentorship of Dr. Alexander K. Stewart (Chair of the SLU Geology Department).
