Katherine H. Freeman is a co-editor-in-chief of the peer-reviewed scientific journal, Annual Review of Earth and Planetary Sciences.[1] She is also the Evan Pugh University Professor of Geosciences at Pennsylvania State University where her research interests are organic geochemistry, isotopic biogeochemistry, paleoclimate and astrobiology.[2][3]

Academic background[edit | hide | hide all]

In 1984 Wellesley College awarded Freeman her B.A. in geology and classical civilization. At Indiana University, Bloomington she obtained her M.S. (1989) and Ph.D. (1991) in geology under the direction of John M. Hayes.[4] Freeman then did a postdoc at the Skidaway Institute of Oceanography (Savannah, Georgia) in 1990-91, and subsequently joined Pennsylvania State University in 1991.[2][5] Freeman was appointed a Distinguished Professor in 2015[6] and later an Evan Pugh University Professor in 2016 by Penn State.[7] An Evan Pugh University professorship is the highest honor that Pennsylvania State University can bestowed on a member of its faculty.[7]
