New Faculty 2013: Meet Michael McGlue

The Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences is excited to welcome Assistant Professor Michael McGlue to its faculty!
 
McGlue's research background rests in both stratigraphy—or the study of rock layers and layering—and Earth history. In both cases, McGlue aims to answer questions related to environmental change and energy resources. In the decade that McGlue has spent studying these issues, his research has carried him around the world and he has plans to carry it even further here at UK.
