Paul Goddard

Paul Goddard

Post-Doctoral Fellow

My previous research focused on regional sea level rise, Antarctic shelf water warming, and West Antarctic precipitation using global climate models.

Katherine Kravitz

Katherine Kravitz

Post-Doctoral Fellow

I study the intersection of tectonics, surface processes and biogeography using numerical modeling.

Bei Liu

Bei Liu

Post-Doctoral Fellow

I am a post-doctoral fellow in Dr. Schieber’s group. My research interests include sedimentology and stratigraphy, sedimentary geochemistry, organic petrography and geochemistry, with a focus on organic-rich sedimentary rocks (e.g., coals and black shales).

Jovanka Nikolic

Jovanka Nikolic

Postdoctoral Research Associate

Jovanka is a postdoctoral research associate in Dr. Kravitz’s group, working on computational fluid dynamics simulations of wind plants to quantify uncertainty for wind energy.
