Centers, Labs, and Programs

Organic molecules in natural waters can help us to understand the global cycling of biologically important elements like carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus.

Specializing in high-precision isotopic analyses, elemental abundances, and petrology. Our main areas of research are in the fields of cosmochemistry and mantle and crustal geochemistry.
