Chris Garvie (B.Sc.)

Christopher Garvie read mathematics at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, and his professional career is being spent in the development of scientific and industrial real-time software and systems. He has had an extended interest in both vertebrate and invertebrate paleontology since 1971, with recent emphasis on Gulf Coast molluscan faunas of the late Cretaceous through early Eocene, particularly the Turridae (six papers to date). He is helping the NPL staff curate and identify their specimens, but still manages to find time for family, classical music and the visual arts!

Comment: Chris is now one of the research fellows of NPL and has recently been awarded the prestigious Strimple Award from the Paleontological Society. He also received scholarship support from the Paleontological Society of Austin to present his research at the malacological meetings in Belgium 2007. Chris is also being honored for his research contributions by the Paleontological Reserach Institute (PRI) in upstate New York He will receive the Katherine Palmer Award
