Event Description

Lisa White, PhD, University of California at Berkeley, Director of Education and Outreach UC Museum of Paleontology


Awareness, engagement, and professional preparation in geoscience: How University of California Museum of Paleontology resources and partnerships are reaching broader audiences

Dr. White joined the UCMP in July 2012 as Director of Education and Outreach. She comes to the UCMP after a 22-year history at San Francisco State University where she held positions of Professor of Geosciences and Associate Dean of the College of Science and Engineering.

She taught undergraduate classes in paleontology, historical geology, and oceanography, and guided research projects with graduate students in Miocene diatoms of the Monterey Formation of CA, and fossil cold seep assemblages in the Franciscan Complex.

From her web site: "My history with the UCMP is interwoven with the Understanding Evolution and Understanding Sciences sites, having served on both project advisory boards. In my current roles I am connecting broader audiences with UCMP online resources."

Host: Katy Estes-Smargiassi, Invertebrate Paleontology, Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University
