Dr. Hendy is the recipient of the Doris M. Curtis Memorial Fund for Women in Science Award and was a Post-doctoral Fellow in Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences at the University of British Columbia from 2000 to 2002.
Ph.D. Geological Sciences, University of California, Santa Barbara, 2000
Dr. Hendy's interests involve understanding climate change processes in relation to ocean and atmospheric circulation. Increasing concern about global climate change makes improving our understanding of what drives climate change highly relevant. Previous research has used faunal assemblages and stable isotopes of foraminifera, redox and bulk sediment geochemistry, grain size among other methods to deconvolve the processes controlling past climate change.
