Profiles in "Biogeochemistry" Expertise Area

  • Grimm is an ecosystem scientist who studies desert streams and cities and their resilience to extreme events.
  • Elser investigates the theory of biological stoichiometry — the study of the balance of energy and multiple chemical elements in living systems.
  • Williams' research focuses on the chemical composition of clays and their interactions with organics and microbes.
  • Anbar is a President’s Professor and Howard Hughes Medical Institute Professor at ASU, and a Distinguished Sustainability Scholar in the Global Institute of Sustainability. One major focus is the deep time history of O2.
  • Hartnett has joint appointments in the School of Earth and Space Exploration and the School of Molecular Sciences. Her current research interests are in the areas of biogeochemistry, astrobiology, and organic geochemistry.
  • Ball is a field ecologist studying the impacts of global environmental change (such as air pollution, species loss, and climate change) on soil ecosystems. Currently her research has focused on desert and polar soils.
  • I am an anthropological archaeologist who examines the social impacts of long-distance exchange and long-term human-animal relationships in pre-Hispanic North America.
  • Cadillo-Quiroz studies how microbes participate in ecosystem and applied processes.
  • Penton is a microbial ecologist whose research focuses on the impacts of plant disease, climate change, and agricultural management on the soil microbiome, encompassing both bacteria and fungi.
  • Day is a plant ecologist who studies factors that control plant performance, plant litter decomposition and carbon cycling.
