Congratulations to Dr. Zach Sickmann for successfully defending his PhD!

Zach's research was focused on understanding the tectonic and sedimentological controls on provenance signatures within modern and ancient sediments. The title of his dissertation is "Understanding provenance signatures in active margin settings: Modern central California and the Magallanes-Austral Foreland Basin, southern Patagonia." Congratulations and good luck, Zach!
