Ellen Thomas, research professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, attended the ‘Climate and Biota of the Early Paleogene’ meeting in New Zealand in January. She was on the organizing committee for this meeting, and presented an invited talk during the ‘Greenhouse Earth Symposium,’ an event presenting the highlights of relevant research to the general public.
Thomas also was the co-author on two other talks, which she presented with her Ph.D students from Utrecht University in the Netherlands and Leuven University in Belgium. She also co-authored a poster Laia Alegret from Zaragoza University in Spain. Alegret spent two summers at Wesleyan while she was working on her Ph.D thesis under Thomas.
