A Pitt PhD candidate earned a Mendenhall Research Fellowship

Chloë Glover

Chloë Glover, a PhD candidate in the Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences’ Department of Geology and Environmental Science, was awarded a U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Mendenhall Research Fellowship. Only a handful of applicants are awarded the postdoctoral fellowship each year.  

She will work with the Geology, Minerals, Energy and Geophysics Science Center on a project titled “Integrated geophysical and structural analysis to identify 3D critical mineral resources and tectonic context of Northeast Washington.”

The main goal of her proposed research is to develop a 3D tectonic framework of northeastern Washington State from thermo-kinematic models and new high-resolution aeromagnetic and radiometric data from the EarthMRI to model and identify critical mineral resources. She will use a combination of field work, geologic mapping, sample collection for thermochronology, data processing, geologic cross-sections and geophysical and thermo-kinematic modeling for this project.
