Lisa Robbins
The Coastal and Marine Geology Team in St. Petersburg welcomes Dr. Lisa L. Robbins as their new Team Chief Scientist.

A graduate of the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, Lisa comes to us from a position as Associate Professor at the University of South Florida, Tampa. She has outstanding academic credentials and a strong scientific research record in the fields of molecular paleontology and marine biogeochemistry. She served a semester as the Acting Head of the Department of Geology and was the Director of the Molecular Paleontology and Biomineralization Laboratory. She was a member of USF's Institute of Biomolecular Science Advisory Board and the Committee on Research. She has extensive experience in representing USF on internal faculty committees (promotions, strategic planning, tenure selection, science advisory boards) as well as in the external community. In the latter area, she has served on the editorial board of the journal "Geology," has been a member of various Ocean Drilling Program committees, was co-organizer of a professional society research conference, and was the founder and President of the South Florida chapter of the Association of Women Geoscientists.

Lisa has been Chief Scientist on numerous research cruises on the Florida Institute of Oceanography R/V Bellows and R/V Suncoaster. She has worked collaboratively and published research papers with several USGS scientists in the St. Petersburg Field Center. She has developed working partnerships and obtained funding support from many outside sources, abilities that are valued highly in the Geologic Division and which will be of significant value to the Coastal and Marine Geology Team and to the Program.

Lisa says, "I'm looking forward to working with this great group, not only in administration but in scientific arenas as well."

Welcome Lisa!
