Dr. Cameron Batchelor

Cameron worked on a geochemical study of the Late Devonian mass extinction, using 87Sr/86Sr measurements to provide information about depositional setting and diagenesis, and looking for zircons in sediments and lava flows to help constrain biostratigraphic ages. When she was not on the scanning electron microscope at Appalachian, she was working in the Geochronology and Isotope Geochemistry lab run by Dr. Drew Coleman at UNC-Chapel Hill.  Cameron's fieldwork, stable isotope analyses, and zircon geochronology work during her time at Appalachian has resulted in the following publications (with more on the way):

Cameron recently finished her Ph.D. in isotope geochemistry at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and started a postdoc at MIT in 2022.
