Adam B. Jost, Graduate Student, Department of Geological & Environmental Sciences

Department of Geological & Environmental Sciences

The end-Guadalupian extinction event; biogeochemical cycling; isotope geochemistry; evolution of body size


Brian Kelley, Graduate Student, Department of Geological & Environmental Sciences

Department of Geological & Environmental Sciences

I am a PhD candidate working in the paleobiology and carbonate sedimentology research group with Jonathan Payne. I study the development of reef-stabilized, carbonate platform margins in the aftermath of the end-Permian extinction. Specifically, I am investigating the sedimentology and paleoecology of the oldest-known platform-margin reefs of the Mesozoic Era.

Matthew Malkowski, Graduate Student, Department of Geological & Environmental Sciences

Department of Geological & Environmental Sciences

I am a PhD student working with the Sedimentary Research Group under Steve Graham. Broadly speaking, I am interested in studying the evolution of mountain belts and their associated sedimentary basins over geologic time (i.e., millions of years). I do this by implementing the fundamental relationships between process sedimentology, sedimentary basin evolution, and plate tectonic interactions. My dissertation includes studies of both modern and ancient basins in the central valley of California and the Patagonian region of southern Argentina, respectively. Much of this work is focused on determining the source, transport/delivery pathways, and depositional setting of siliciclastic sediment in deep-water depositional systems.  Click on my profile to see more.


Larisa Masalimova, Ph.D. Student, Department of Geological & Environmental Sciences

Department of Geological & Environmental Sciences

I am PhD student working with Stanford Project on Deep-Water Depositional Systems. The research i am working on involves three projects: -Sedimentation in a deep-water slope fan system of the Miocene Mount Messenger formation, the Taranaki basin, New Zealand; -Relationships between processes of sedimentation, lithofacies, and origins of reservoir sands, upper Austrian Molasse Basin;
-Dune-size ripples in deep-water fine-grained sediments.
