Paleoecologist, Postdoctoral Researcher

Christopher Schiller is a paleoecologist and postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Earth Sciences at Montana State University. He has a bachelor's degree in Geology from the South Dakota School of Mines and a Ph.D. in Earth Sciences from Montana State University. His research uses pollen and other microfossils found in lake sediments to understand the ecosystems and climate of the past. Current research is focused on the impacts of past geological processes, such as distant volcanic eruptions and local hydrothermal activity, on the development of Yellowstone ecosystems over the past 14,000 years.
