About the Society Awards Past Award Winners 2016 Awardees 2016 (Albert E. Wood Award) - Sarah Gibson

Sarah Z. Gibson is currently a PhD Candidate in the Department of Geology and Biodiversity Institute at the University of Kansas, under the guidance of Dr. Hans-Peter Schultze. Sarah studies the evolutionary relationships of lower actinopterygian (ray-finned) fishes, with a focus on the fishes of the Early Mesozoic of North America. Her research takes her into collections frequently, as many of the specimens she uses were collected centuries ago and have remained relatively understudied. Sarah aims to include poorly known taxa within the context of modern, phylogenetic hypotheses of evolutionary relationships, and so she spends a bulk her time studying the morphology of these fishes in collections across the country and around the world.

In addition to her research, Sarah is currently serving as an editor for the PLOS Paleontology Community blog. She has also worked at several institutions, including the Museum of Ancient Life in Lehi, Utah, the St. George Dinosaur Discovery Site at Johnson Farm in St. George, Utah, the University of Kansas Natural History Museum in Lawrence, and The Field Museum in Chicago. Sarah earned a Master’s Degree in Geology from the University of Kansas in 2012, a Bachelor’s Degree in Geology from Southern Utah University in 2006, and an Associate’s Degree in Geology from the College of Eastern Utah in 2004.
