EAS PhD Candidate Anne Kort has received a McCormick Science Grant.
Charles O. McCormick III, M.D., established the McCormick Science Grant Fund to honor his father and grandfather and to support basic science research. In creating the fund Dr. McCormick asked the College to identify the graduate student member of a faculty/graduate student team whose research is judged most creative, visionary, and innovative.
Anne is doing research on the evolution of Cenozoic mammals using a combination of 3D analysis, artificial intelligence algorithms, and primary description of fossils and their geological context.
