Amy Hsieh
PhD Student Member

Ms. Amy Hsieh is a cotutelle-PhD candidate working jointly between the Dpt. of Earth Sciences at Simon Fraser University and the Dpt. of Geosciences at National Taiwan University. The purpose of her research is to understand the impact of past climate oscillations on tropical cyclones and identifying geochemical and/or sedimentological proxies that most accurately record orbital forcing influences using shallow-marine sedimentary archives of the Pliocene Kueichulin Formation in Taiwan
