Aims of the Fellowship
I had the privilege of working with one of the geologists, Ian Glasspool, who is the collections manager for the department of Paleobotany.  My primary project revolved around the increasing need for his collection of approximately 200,000 specimens to be more easily accessible to both himself and other scientists who may wish to use it.
