On January 25-27, 2020, Professor Cecilia McHugh presented the results of her research on earthquakes at the “International Conference on Earth and Environmental Sciences & Technology for Sustainable Development” (ICEEST) in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
Seventy-five scientists representing 21 nations and a large component of Bangladesh dignitaries including Abdul Hamid, the President of Bangladesh, Minister of Education, Vice-Chancellors of Universities, Navy officers, Professors, and students attended the ICEEST 2020. Five scientists represented the US from Vanderbilt University, Lamont and Queens College, CUNY.

On Tuesday, December 17th, students from Geology 200 (Methods in Geoscience) presented their final research projects at a poster symposium. For their projects, the class was split into eight groups and sent to Central Park to observe and record data of the outcrops found there. The class measured the azimuth of glacial striations, strike and dip of foliations, and examined the rock types they found. Their data was compiled and shared with the rest of the class and then each group researched the geology of area to reach conclusions about their findings.
This project is an excellent opportunity to prepare our students for research and presenting it to a professional audience.
Below are some pictures of the event:

Professor Cecilia McHugh will be presenting a seminar at 1:15 PM at the American Museum of Natural History on October 24th, 2019. Her talk is titled “Submarine paleoseismology as a tool for identifying earthquakes and tsunamis: Lessons learned and future challenges” and will be held in The AMNH Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences on the fourth floor in the Wallach Orientation Center on the south or 77th Street side of the building. Faculty and students are welcome to attend!
