Muammar will join the lab this coming fall. He obtained his Ph.D. (specialized in Isotopic Geochemistry and Geomicrobiology) from Penn State, 2017. Muammar will focus on advancing our understanding regarding biogenic versus abiogenic metal-sulfide nanocrystals. He will also be involved in other key projects in the NanoGeoBio lab.
Hugo was born in Mexico. He completed a B.S. in Microbiology and an M.S. in Chemistry at UTEP. Hugo also had experience teaching Chemistry and Microbiology courses at the college level for 5 years. Hugo have a strong drive for environmental remediation and wish to use his background to help solve some of the complex environmental problems that we face today. Hugo will work on the roles of anoxygenic photosynthetic bacteria in a range of environments as well as on their interactions with associated sulfide minerals.
Co-advised by Lin and Jie. Matt studies the trace metal behavior in the nanoscale components of coal fly ashes using combined geochemical and microbiological approaches.
Brandon is joining us as a Masters student this coming fall. He will work on the role of sulfate-reducers and their relationship with gypsum in water-restricted environmental conditions.
Born and raised in Mexico, Ezequiel moved to the United States just in time for high school, where his passion for the earth sciences flourished. He is working on capturing the transformation of biogenic versus abiogenic iron-sulfide nanoparticles in their aqueous environments.
Rocio is culturing purple sulfur bacteria and is interested in extracting bacterial DNA from environmental samples.
