Edward Lo
Lyman T. Johnson Postdoctoral Fellow

Edward is a LTJ postdoctoral fellow (2023-24) in the Appalachian Center working on the inclusion of traditional ecological knowledge to study sedimentary records of environmental change in Kentucky. He is from Acworth, GA and attended Louisiana State University for his BS in environmental geology and completed his MS and PhD in geological sciences at UK. He was originally a biochemistry major but switched to geoscience after discovering the excitement of studying landscape evolution. Some of the notable places he has visited for geological work are Big Bend National Park, Mammoth Cave National Park, Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve, Golden Gate Canyon State Park, and the Pantanal Matogrossense National Park (Brazil).
