Michelle Guitard

Michelle Guitard is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of South Florida, College of Marine Science in St. Petersburg, Florida. She has been part of the Shevenell Lab since 2012 and received her Masters in 2015.


My area of study is Paleoceanography. I use ocean sediments to determine past changes in Antarctic and the surrounding Southern Ocean. I have sailed aboard the R/V Laurence M. Gould and the RV/IB Nathanial B. Palmer to both the Antarctic Peninsula and East Antarctica. My most recent cruise aboard the JOIDES Resolution took me to the Southern Ocean with the aim of reconstructing Antarctic Ice Sheet history over the last 14 million years

  20. I am attending your presentation tonight at AMNH SciCafe and ran across this blog. What a great experience; congrats on your PhD. How fascinating when youthful proclivities lead us down a path. Best of luck on a rewarding career.

    I am actually headed to Ushuaia next month for an Antarctic trip. Was hoping you might share travel tips. My trip is 10 days navigating Drake Passage to Antarctic Peninsula and the South Shetland Islands. Naturalists onboard rather than scientific researchers.
