Diddordebau ymchwil

Research interests: I am interested in how life could have survived the Cryogenian “Snowball Earth” global glaciations of ~650 million years ago. Cryoconite holes, meltwater pockets in glaciers containing dust and microbes, present an exciting opportunity to understand life in ice. I will be creating analogues for Snowball Earth cryoconite ecosystems in the lab, using modern day cold-climate microorganisms that resemble early life and culturing them under Cryogenian conditions. From this I hope to gain insight into organisms and microbial processes that may have been important during this time.
