Section 4.4: Interface Geochemistry

Our research addresses the quantitative elucidation of biogeochemical reactions at low to hydrothermal temperatures and in both, inorganic and biologic systems. 

My group focuses on two main aspects:

(1) the mechanisms and kinetics of mineral nucleation and growth and the associated speciation, sequestration or release/transport of various elements in Earth surface environments; 

(2) the preservation and adaptations of microbial life in extreme environments in geothermal and arctic settings.
