Kristin Bergmann works to reconstruct the record of environmental change from observations of sedimentary rocks from latest Precambrian to Ordovician time. To date, she has worked on carbonate sedimentary rocks in order to better understand how the chemistry and climate of the oceans and atmosphere have affected the evolution of animal life over this time. She received a BA in geology and environmental studies from Carleton College in 2004 and completed her PhD at Caltech in 2013 under the direction of Professors John Grotzinger, Woody Fischer and John Eiler. Before joining the MIT faculty, she was a junior fellow with the Harvard Society of Fellows, working with Professor Andy Knoll.
