Astrobiology Areas of Interest: Origin & Evolution of Life on Earth, Life in Extreme Environments


I was a graduate student in the UW Astrobiology program from 2002-2010, and I liked it so much that I found a way to stay here for post-doctoral research!

I am a co-author along with several fellow UW Astrobiology students on a recently published review on the origin of life. The authors are multidisciplinary, the content is interdisciplinary, and we think it is a good example of how UW Astrobiology students are trained to think and write. Check it out.

My personal website has links to other publications and some general-audience writings.
