Personal Profile

With an interdisciplinary background in geology and geomicrobiology, I focus on the geomicrobiological processes during mineral-microbe interactions and their environmental and geological impacts. To do so, I have been trained to be skilled at mineral characterization, geochemical analysis, microbiological cultivation and molecular biological techniques. I serve as PI and co-PI on several projects in areas of biogeochemistry of C, N and Fe during mineral-microbial interactions. The recent question I am very interested in is experimental modeling of biogeochemistry evolution on the Earth’s surface environment during Precambrian Eon by using extremophiles cultures from hot springs. More specifically, to understand how co-evolution of environmental condition (e.g., redox, temperature) and microbial groups (e.g., N, Fe, S redox) would affect the development of chemical structures (transition between nitrogenous, ferruginous, euxinic and oxygenation), mineral formation (in BIFs) and essential elements (e.g., P, trace metals) in the paleo-ocean through over 3-billion-year geological time, and how geological records (e.g., isotopes, minerals) would be affected at different ages.
