Sabrina Brown, '14

Sabrina BrownSince receiving my B.S. and M.S. from Indiana State, I have begun the pursuit of a Ph.D. in geoscience. I currently call Lincoln, Nebraska home and am a Graduate Research Assistant & Othmer Fellow at University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I’m continuing to train as a micropaleoecologist, specializing in reconstructing past environments using fossilized algae. My dissertation research focuses on assessing the impact of hydrothermal explosion events on diatom populations in Yellowstone National Park. I couldn’t ask for a better field site! Alongside my studies, I volunteer at the Nebraska State Museum, sit on the Graduate Student Assembly, and serve as Graduate Representative to the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Science. During my trips home to Indiana, I always find time to watch the Sparkettes Dance Team (of which I was a member for six years) and stop into the Department of Earth and Environmental Science to visit for a few!

Graduated from Indiana State University:

2016- M.S. in Earth & Quaternary Sciences

2014- B.S. in Earth & Environmental Sciences and Science Education (summa cum laude)
