Dr. Michael M. McGlue is Pioneer Natural Resources professor of stratigraphy and paleoenvironmental analysis in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Kentucky. He holds a B.S. in Geology from Washington and Lee University, an M.Sc. in Earth Science from Syracuse University, and a Ph.D. in Geosciences from the University of Arizona. Prior to joining UK, he worked as a Mendenhall Post-Doctoral Fellow at the U.S. Geological Survey in Denver, CO. His research group conducts field- and laboratory-based studies of muds and mudrocks, in order to answer questions related to water, energy, and climate. Areas of expertise include geological records of environmental change, lakes/wetlands, and conservation. Current research interests include the hydroclimatic evolution of the East African Rift Valley (Tanzania, Malawi, Uganda), the Pantanal wetlands (Brazil), the eastern Sierra Nevada (CA), the Grand Tetons (WY), and the southern Black Hills (SD).
