Welcome - Dobro DoŠli


I was born a coal miner’s daughter on the Istrian penisula of Croatia.  I have an undergraduate degree in geology from the University of Zagreb in Croatia, and a PhD from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, U.S.A.  I have been enjoying teaching and conducting research with students at Smith College since 1997.  Smith is the largest private liberal arts college for women in the United States located in the picturesque town of Northampton in the beautiful Pioneer Valley of west-central Massachusetts.

Currently I offer the following courses: Extraordinary Events in the History of Earth, Life and Climate; Archaeological Geology of Rock Art and Stone Artifacts; Sedimentary Geology; Carbonate Systems and Coral Reefs of the Bahamas; and Tectonics and Earth History.

As a sedimentary geologist I am mainly interested in sedimentology, stratigraphy, petrography, geochemistry and archaeological geology of carbonate deposits.  My numerous research projects range from investigating Cambrian strata of the US Appalachians, to the Mesozoic and Cenozoic of Croatia, and the Quaternary of the Bahamas.  I have also worked along the Gulf Coast of Texas, in the Dominican Republic, and on the Micronesian islands of Palau and Yap.  

I am an officer for the Eastern Section for the Society for Sedimentary Geology (ES-SEPM); co-organizer of the 16th Symposium on the Geology of the Bahamas and other Carbonate Regions in 2012 on San Salvador island; and the SEPM Vice-Chair for the 2013 American Association of Petroleum Geologists Annual Convention & Exhibition (AAPG ACE) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
