    Professor Chloe Branciforte

    Professor Branciforte is an Associate Professor of Geology at Ventura College in Ventura, California. She has a Master of Science in paleontology from South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, and a Bachelor of Science in Geology from SUNY Buffalo in New York. Professor Branciforte specializes in vertebrate paleontology, specifically small mammals (i.e., rodents), and has been teaching geology for more than a decade. When she was 9, Professor Branciforte had the opportunity to participate in a fossil hunting day with a local museum and her Girl Scout troop. She found her first fossil that day and knew she wanted to be a paleontologist.

    Dr. Emily Haddad

    Dr. Haddad is an Assistant Professor of Geology at East Los Angeles College in Monterey Park, California. She has a PhD in organic geochemistry and paleoecology from the University of California at Riverside, with a focus on extinction, black shales, and ancient microbial ecology, and an A.B. in Government and Earth and Planetary Sciences from Harvard University. Dr. Haddad decided she was going to be a paleontologist when she was 5 years old but took a detour though political science as an undergraduate, before returning to her first passion in graduate school.
