AGU Announcement and "Amplification"
Just a quick announcement that I will be presenting a poster at AGU. Full abstract can be found here. Come learn about my senior thesis and my current scientific interests!
Friday, 16 December 2016, from 08:00 - 12:00
Poster # PP51C-2324
"The effect of heated vapor-phase acidification on organic carbon concentrations and isotopic values in geologic rock samples"
Session PP51C: Interpretations of Stable Carbon Isotope Records in Sedimentary Systems I Posters
I would also like to use my blog to highlight the achievements of other women in STEM fields. I am partly inspired to do this because of a strategy called "amplification" that Obama's female staffers used to make sure they were heard and credited for their ideas. From New York Magazine:
Female staffers adopted a meeting strategy they called 'amplification': When a woman made a key point, other women would repeat it, giving credit to its author. This forced the men in the room to recognize the contribution — and denied them the chance to claim the idea as their own.
“We just started doing it, and made a purpose of doing it. It was an everyday thing,” said one former Obama aide who requested anonymity to speak frankly. Obama noticed, she and others said, and began calling more often on women and junior aides.
So, please also come see a talk by Minda Monteagudo, a paleooceanography Ph.D. student in the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Georgia Tech (and one of my best friends)! Full abstract can be found here. She and I both received B.S. Geology degrees from USC Earth Sciences.

Abstract # PP44B-05
"Mg/Ca-temperature calibration and flux variability of Globigerinoides ruber based on a bi-weekly resolved sediment trap."

Hope to see you all there!
