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 anoxygenic photosynthetic bacteria, especially their interactions with metal sulfide nanostructures.
Rachel is a recipient of the Excellence Fellowship. Rachel's work focuses on the reactivity and fate of moybdate and thiomolybdate in various types of euxinic conditions.
Humayra received her M.D. degree from Bangladesh. Her research interest lies in microbiology, especially those thriving in extreme environments.
Grace joined us for a relatively short time in the summer of 2022 from University of Southern California. Grace has helped significantly in the purple sulfur bacteria-metal sulfide work. Her focus was on the strain of Halorhodospira halophila.
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.
Christian's work focused on biological Fe-V-sulfide system during his appointment.
Erica's work focused on the abiotic sequestration pathways of molybdate under euxinic conditions.
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.
Tony's work focused on the extraction of nucleic acids from environmental samples and also the amplification of these extracted nucleic acid.
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.
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.
