GSA 2015

PCP PIRE has a large contingent here at GSA in Baltimore, MD this year. We hit the ground running with numerous poster presentations and oral presentations.

Former PCP PIRE intern Michael Ziegler presents research from the Azuero Peninsula of Panama that he did in concert with Amanda Waite.

PhD student Victor Perez holds a 3D printed megalodon tooth in front of his research poster.

Post doc Adiël Klompmaker spoke about Octopod predation on mollusks.

Cristina Robins, Roger Portell, and Javier Luque with their poster on fossil crabs-teasing out characteristics of sexual dimorphism and ontogeny.

Gephen Sadove and Mike Kedenburg presented their research on the geochron of the Azuero Peninsula (see previous post). Great first day at GSA!

About Cristina Robins

The mission of the Panama Canal Project - Partnerships in International Research and Education [PCP PIRE] is to advance knowledge of the extinct faunas and floras of the ancient Neotropics based on the new fossil discoveries along the Canal. Consistent with NSF's PIRE program objectives, university students (undergraduate and graduate), postdocs, and faculty are engaging in PCP paleontological, geological, and biological research and Broader Impacts outreach. The ultimate outcome of the PCP PIRE will be to promote discovery and advance knowledge while training the next generation of scientists better able to engage in international experiences.
