Muammar was a postdoc in the lab from July 2017 - Nov 2019. Muammar's work focused on the precipitation and transformation of multiple metal-sulfide systems in anoxic low-temperature aqueous condition. Muammar obtained his Ph.D. (specialized in Isotopic Geochemistry and Geomicrobiology) from Penn State.
Humayra received her M.D. degree from Bangladesh. Her research interest lies in environmental microbiology, especially that in extreme environments.
Hugo was born in Mexico. He completed a B.S. in Microbiology and an M.S. in Chemistry at UTEP. Hugo is mostivated to use his multidisciplinary background to help solve some of the complex environmental problems that we face today. Hugo's work focuses on the roles of anoxygenic photosynthetic bacteria in a range of environments as well as on their interactions with associated sulfide nanominerals.
Erica's work focuses on the abiotic sequestration pathways of molybdate in euxinic conditions.
Tony's work focuses on the extraction of nucleic acids from environmental samples and also the amplification of these extracted nucleic acid.
Co-advised by Lin and Jie. Matt studied the trace metal behavior in the nanoscale components of coal fly ashes using combined geochemical and microbiological approaches.
Brandon has double majors in Geology and Chemistry and joined us from upper state of Michigna. Brandon's work focused on the relationships of S-cycling bacteria and their mineralogical environment in White Sands and Badwater Basin.
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. Ezequiel's work focused on capturing the transformation of biogenic versus abiogenic iron-sulfide nanoparticles in anoxic low-temperature aqueous environments.
Jason worked on analyzing the mineralogical compositions of samples obtained from the White Sands using XRD and SEM.
