Geosciences Faculty Elected Treasurer of Geochemical Society
Congratulations to Dr. Haibo Zou, professor in the Department of Geosciences, for being elected as the treasurer of the Geochemical Society.
“I am excited to serve as a treasurer and board director to get more involved with the society,” explained Dr. Zou. "Earth Sciences has three major fields: geology, geophysics and geochemistry. Geochemistry is the marriage of geology and chemistry for better understanding how the Earth evolves and works. The Geochemical Society is the international society for geochemists and connects its more than 4,000 members through excellent conferences, publications, award programs, student programs, and more.”
This is the first time he has been serving for the Geochemical Society.
“I consider myself as both a geologist and geochemist,” he added. “I have been serving as a Fellow (since 2011) and Associate Editor (since 2016) for the Geological Society of America. I hope this service as a treasurer for the Geochemical Society will raise the visibility of Auburn Department of Geosciences.”
Founded in 1955, this society encourages “the application of geochemistry to improving our understanding of the Earth and solar system” throughout its network of members.
Dr. Zou has taught at Auburn University since 2008.
