Congratulations to Emmy Smith – HEMI Fellow, principal investigator at the Smith lab and assistant professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Johns Hopkins University – for being awarded the 2021 James Wilson Award by the Society for Sedimentary Geology.
Smith is interested in the co-evolution of life, climate, oceans, and tectonics during the Neoproterozoic and Cambrian periods. Her research is focused on testing hypotheses about mechanistic links between environmental change and evolutionary milestones at field sites around the world.
The James Wilson Award is awarded to researchers who have significant research accomplishments in sedimentary geology; nominees must be between 0-5 years from their PhD at the time of nomination. There is no citizenship requirement, nor professional organization membership requirement, for recipients of the award.
