Dr. Gary Gianniny Awarded 2011-12 Fort Lewis College Featured Scholar

Dr. Gianniny joined Fort Lewis College in 1999 after earning his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin.  In addition to his teaching, he is an active researcher, studying such topics as climatic vs. intrinsic controls on sedimentation, tectonics and sedimentation, and the implications of sequence stratigraphy for aquifer and reservoir characterization and prediction.

Dr. Gianniny is particularly interested in helping students learn critical thinking skills by doing science in geology, demonstrating the interconnectedness of knowledge, development of interdisciplinary liberal arts curricula, and environmental education.
