M. Lagoe (1951-1995)
Ph.D. Stanford

A micropaleontologist, Lagoe worked in both research and exploration applying his knowledge in industry before joining UTDGS in 1985.

His major focus was on foraminifera and their clues to paleoenvironments*.

He applied quantitative methods of micropaleontological interpretations focussing on both the Gulf of Alaska and the Gulf of Mexico.
