Sally Zellers PhD
Sally Zellers is now a Research Fellow who is interested in understanding glaciomarine sediments by examining foraminiferal faunas associated with them. Currently she is working on characterizing Recent foraminifera in Yakutat and Disenchantment Bays in Alaska. She is relying heavily on picked and identified reference collections of Neogene and Recent Alaskan foraminifera in the NPL collections. Another upcoming project is to use foraminiferal assemblages to test seismic stratigraphic interpretations of glaciomarine sequences on the Alaskan continental shelf. In addition to this research, Sally enjoys teaching undergraduate classes in Geology, Stratigraphy, and Meteorology at Central Missouri State University where she is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biology and Earth Science.
Sally began her association with NPL as a volunteer. She inventoried much of the microfossil collection of Martin Lagoe, and then went on to create a database for tracking productivity of all who work at NPL, the infamous NPL_ActivityLog!
