Please join us for a talk by Yale Assistant Professor of Geology and Geophysics Pincelli Hull. Professor Hull’s research focuses on the evolution and ecology of open ocean ecosystems and species, including the causes and consequences of mass extinctions and community responses to global climate change. In her talk, Prof. Hull will address the issues raised by climate change, the importance of understanding the dynamic nature of ocean ecosystems, and the effect of the extinctions occurring in oceans during our own time. 

This event is free of charge thanks to contributions made by the
supporting members of the Yale Alumni Association of Greenwich.

Pincelli Hull received her Ph.D. from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in 2010 and joined the faculty at Yale in 2013 after postdoctoral research at Yale University and the University of Konstanz. She received B.S. degrees at Duke in Earth and Ocean Sciences and in biology with a concentration in Marine Biology.

Prof. Hull’s research focuses on the relationship between open ocean life and the environment during mass extinctions, abrupt climatic events, and changes in background climate state. Her publications span events from the late Cretaceous to the modern day, and typically focuses on the fossil record of plankton, particularly planktonic foraminifera.

She has recently been awarded a Sloan Research Fellowship in Ocean Science for her work.
