Science Professors Work Abroad and Establish Research Collaboration

During the 2012-2013 Academic Year, Dr. Robin O’Keefe, professor in the College of Science, traveled to Chile to establish a new research collaboration there, and made plans to conduct field work in Chile.

Dr. Paul Constantino, professor in the College of Science, worked in Ethiopia (National Museum) and South Africa (Ditsong Museum and University of the Witwatersrand) studying damage on fossil hominin teeth. This work is forming the basis of an undergraduate thesis for a Yeager Scholar here at Marshall who accompanied Dr. Constantino to South Africa. Dr. Constantino also traveled to Glasgow, Scotland to take part in a BBC television special on reconstructing hominin behavior called “Prehistoric Autopsy”. During the 2011-2012 academic year Dr. Constantino published with coauthors from Kuwait, Australia, and Brazil.
