Kathy Licht, associate professor of earth sciences at Indiana University - Purdue University Indianapolis, will be the guest on the August "Conversations from St. Norbert College" television show hosted by St. Norbert College associate academic dean and professor of economics Kevin Quinn. They will discuss Licht's research and career path.

Licht is a 1992 graduate of St. Norbert. She has been researching the Antarctic ice sheet and joined St. Norbert professor of geology Tim Flood on a research expedition there last January. Licht's research focuses on understanding the history of the Antarctic ice sheet so we can better understand what causes it to advance and retreat, and how that fits in with the global climate system.
