Dr. Branwen Williams’s research develops the techniques that we use to generate records of our past ocean and climate variability, and uses these records to understand mechanisms driving environmental changes.  She got her B.Sc. in Marine and Freshwater Biology at the University of Guelph.  She then got her M.Sc. in Biology at GEOTOP with the Université du Québec à Montréal.  She then went to complete at her Ph.D. in Geological Science in the School of Earth Sciences at the Ohio State University.  From there, she did a postdoctoral research fellowship in the Department of Chemical & Physical Sciences at the University of Toronto Mississauga.  She is now an Associate Professor of Environmental Sciences in the W.M. Keck Science Department , a science department that is shared among three colleges of the Claremont Colleges: Claremont McKenna College, Pitzer College, and Scripps College.
