Title of PhD: Biogeography of the Late Eocene-Early Oligocene Nannofossils Assemblages

Supervisors: Dr Tom Dunkley Jones and Dr Ian Boomer

Sufiah is currently studying the climate changes during the late Eocene-early Oligocene (EOT boundary) of the Mossy Grove core, Mississippi. She is working on a calcareous nannofossils stuff to integrate the data from nannofossils to identify the EOT boundary as well as the paleotemperature , sea cooling response and productivity of coccolithophores.
