Next Science Café to discuss climatic events and evolution

Post Published On:

The next installment in Thomas University’s Science Café series will feature Florida State University’s Dr. Jeremy Owens presenting “Biological Evolution During Major Climatic Events” on Tuesday, Jan. 28.

Dr. Owens is an Assistant Professor of Geology in the Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Science at Florida State University. He also works with the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory. Dr. Owens’ research focuses on understanding biogeochemical evolution during major climatic events. He is currently working on developing new geochemical tools to better fingerprint the timing and evolution during these events. Much of this work revolves around being able to better discern natural variability and mechanisms to understand future climate change.

The Science Café will be held in the Flowers Foods Executive Classroom inside Smith-Bonvillian Hall on TU’s Forbes Campus. A reception with the speakers will be held from 6 to 6:30 p.m. The presentation will start at 6:30. For more information, contact April Penton at
