Assistant Professors to Join Department of Geology and Environmental Science

March 15, 2018

With the retirements of Dr. James Clark and Dr. Jeff Greenberg, we are welcoming new Assistant Professors to join the Department of Geology and Environmental Science for Fall 2018.

Dr. Kathryn Maneiro will assume many of the teaching responsibilities of Dr. Jeff Greenberg including mineral science, petrology, and structural geology. As a geochemist/geochronologist she plans to reintroduce geochemistry to our undergraduate curriculum. Her research involves dating some of the Earth's oldest garnets. She completed her PhD at Boston University, more recently a post-doc at Boston College, and a lectureship at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. She and Dr. Sam Smidt were undergraduate classmates at Olivet Nazarene University.
