In A Few Words… Those words I said that one time …

Clayton has, recently, completed a doctorate in Geology. After graduation, he spent a couple years at Penn State (University Park), his alma mater. There he was a research professor, not on a tenure track, but receiving a fellowship grant his fourth year as a grad student, and staying on to finish the fellowship as well as an NSF grant involving using GIS to locate certain rocks in Asia relating to the prior ice age in relation to the current situation on global warming and what may be expected outcomes in shifts of the earth's surface in the years to come. Once this grant ran out, he was left in search of a tenure track and has landed an Assistant Professorship and Northeaster University.
