Geomicrobial Physiology

University of Colorado Boulder

Starting in Fall 2016

The GeoMicrobial Physiology lab at the University of Colorado Boulder will open its doors in the Fall of 2016 when I start as an assistant professor in the Department of Geological Sciences. The lab will focus on studying the physiological drivers of geochemical fingerprints of microbial metabolism, particularly isotopic effects and molecular markers.

My lab is part of the newly expanding Geobiology program at CU Boulder, that also comprises Alexis Templeton's, Julio Sepulveda's and Steve Mojzsis' groups, and has close ties with the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research (INSTAAR) and the Biofrontiers Institute.
