New Faculty 2013: Meet Katherine Thompson

The Department of Statistics is excited to welcome Katherine Thompson to its faculty!
 
While Thompson may be a statistician, her focus on developing statistical methods for biological issues also affords her the opportunity to work with other researchers like those in the Department of Biology. These interdisciplinary bridges that exist at UK are just one example of what drew Thompson to the university and it's her hope that the work she does here only strengthens them further.

Hill looks forward to continuing her research work monitoring the politics of appearance while also being allowed the room to chase her more creative pursuits.

The Curse of Rafinesquina: A Prehistoric Mystery with Rebecca Freeman

All over Kentucky, fossilized brachiopods are common. Rebecca Freeman, a lecturer in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, studies brachiopods and how they interacted with their prehistoric environments according to the fossil record. When I interviewed her about a recent line of research that identified a previously unknown species of brachiopod, I also got a ghost story from Lexington, Kentucky.

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.
