About Penny


Bio

I am a vertebrate paleontologist. I study fossil mammals, and use the chemistry of their teeth to learn about past climate and ecosystems. To get to where I am, I had to study all of the sciences, with special focus on geology, biology, and chemistry.

I have taught introductory geology and paleontology at the university level since 2007. Teaching and tutoring brings me great satisfaction, in that I get to share my understanding of the Earth - its past, present, and future - and help...

I am a vertebrate paleontologist. I study fossil mammals, and use the chemistry of their teeth to learn about past climate and ecosystems. To get to where I am, I had to study all of the sciences, with special focus on geology, biology, and chemistry.

I have taught introductory geology and paleontology at the university level since 2007. Teaching and tutoring brings me great satisfaction, in that I get to share my understanding of the Earth - its past, present, and future - and help students understand the incredible insights about the universe that a study of science has to offer.

Over the course of training to become a vertebrate paleontologist, I have had extensive coursework in the sciences and math. My resume now includes four higher education degrees: B.S. Geology, B.S. Biology; M.S. Chemistry; Ph.D. Geology. Since getting my Ph.D., I have engaged in research that requires application of all of these science fields though which I can provide a coherent picture of what life was like on Earth in the remote past.

My greatest pleasure is helping students grasp concepts in science that are often abstract and hard to follow. My unique experience allows me to provide examples of why topics covered in the typical science class are important. With my educational background, I can help students through exercises in Earth science, biology, and chemistry. And as an added bonus, I have been advised by current and past students of my college level classes that I am fun to work with.
