Athena Eyster

I graduated in 2010 from the University of Michigan with Bachelor of Science degrees in Earth Science and Physics.  In my research I consider the dynamics and characteristics of ancient supercontinents and how rifting and tectonics change surface conditions.  My PhD research has focused on Laurentian rocks from the Neoproterozoic Era, using mapping, measured sections and additional field observations coupled with paleomagnetism, carbon isotope chemostratigraphy and geochronology to tease apart connections between tectonics, rifting and climate.
