2022 Douglas R. Moore Faculty Research Lectureship
President Richard Davenport announced that the recipient of the 2022 Douglas R. Moore Faculty Research Lectureship is Phillip H. Larson, associate professor, director of earth science program and graduate coordinator at Minnesota State Mankato. Larson’s research is titled “How Rivers are Born and Evolve: A Paradigm Shift in Earth Science.”
Davenport said Larson’s research is especially relevant to the University, regional community and beyond because of the University’s location in the Minnesota River Valley. Larson will deliver a public lecture in 2022.
The 2021 Douglas R. Moore Faculty Research Lecture was scheduled for March 29 but has been postponed until fall 2021 because of the pandemic. A date will be announced in the coming months for a presentation by faculty members Scott Granberg-Rademacker and Kevin Parsneau titled “Let’s Get Ready to Tweet! An Analysis of Twitter Use by 2018 Senate Candidates.”
