Brendan Reilly

PhD Candidate, CEOAS

Education:

Ph.D., Ocean, Earth, and Atmospheric Sciences: Geological Oceanography, Oregon State University (exp. 2018)

Graduate Certificate in College and University Teaching, Oregon State University (2016)

M.S., Geoscience, Montclair State University (2013)

B.S., Management, Boston College (2008)

 

Research Interests:

I primarily work on sedimentary records of Earth history, especially how magnetic minerals are used to reconstruct paleoenvironments (environmental magnetism), chronology (magnetostratigraphy), and the Earth’s magnetic field (paleo-geomagnetism).  I am also interested in how other non-destructive analyses, particular scanning x-ray florescence (XRF) and computed tomography (CT), can be used to improve our understanding of these magnetic records.  Geographically, I am involved in projects around the Antarctic Peninsula, Arctic Ocean, Greenland, Indian Ocean, and North America.

 

Other Interests:

Outside of the lab, you can find me exploring Oregon, baking bread, or playing with my psychedelic western surf rock band.
