Oxford's Dr. Rosalind Rickaby receives 2009 Rosenstiel Award
Date:3/11/2009

ng the magnitude of temperature changes during the last glacial periods.

"Dr. Rickaby exemplifies what we are looking for in a Rosenstiel Medal awardee: She is young and dynamic, and exhibits a broad range of original scientific theories that continue to earn her prestigious awards and international acclaim," said Dr. Peter Swart, chair of the division of Marine Geology and Geophysics. "Her broad range of interests and independent spirit make her an excellent role model for up-and- coming scientists."

The extraction of chemical signatures from the fossil shells of marine microorganisms as a tool for constraining past ocean conditions and their influence on climate, on timescales ranging from hundreds to millions of years, is fundamental to Rickaby's research. Her innovative approaches have led her to a greater understanding of the physiological response of phytoplankton to the evolving carbon cycle in the past and how they might react in the future.

"I am fascinated by the jigsaw of complex interactions that take place between the evolution of mineralizing organisms, ocean chemistry, atmospheric composition and Earth's climate," said Rickaby.

Rickaby received her M.A. in Natural Sciences from Magdalene College, University of Cambridge in 1995, and her Ph.D. from the University's Department of Earth Sciences in 1999. She spent two years as a post-doctoral researcher at the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Harvard University.

The Rosenstiel Award, created through an endowment from the Rosenstiel Foundation, recognizes outstanding scientists for their contributions to marine science. It is awarded annually to one individual on a rotating basis for achievements in six broad disciplinary areas: marine geology and geophysics; meteorology and physical oceanography; marine and atmospheric chemistry; marine biology and fisheries; applied marine physics; and marine affairs. This year's award to Rickaby falls within
