Laura Levy

After Laura Levy graduated with a PhD from Dartmouth's Department of Earth Sciences in June 2014, she started a 3-year postdoc position in the Department of Geoscience at Aarhus University in Denmark. Laura's research at Dartmouth with Dr. Meredith Kelly focused on reconstructing late glacial and Holocene ice extents in both eastern and western Greenland. For her postdoctoral research, she is continuing to conduct research in Greenland, although now is focusing on the Holocene fluctuations of the ice sheet margins in northeastern and southeastern Greenland. She started her postdoc by spending 5 weeks aboard a 90-ft schooner, The Activ, sailing around the amazingly beautiful fjords of southeastern Greenland collecting rock samples for surface exposure dating.

Now, back in Denmark, she will be using her lab skills that she developed in the Dartmouth Cosmogenic Laboratory to help researchers at Aarhus University set up a cosmo lab of their own.
