Centre for Geobiology and Geochemistry

Our research focuses on the Earth's surface, including in and under its oceans, where life has evolved and profoundly affected environments over billions of years.



We examine the tracing of Earth system processes at both low and high temperature using geochemical methods.

Geomicrobiology and Biogeochemistry

We study interactions between life, geology and environmental chemistry to unravel biogeochemical processes important for Earth’s habitability through Earth history.

We study the structure, morphology, growth and systematics of organisms and their interactions with each other and with the lithosphere, oceans and atmosphere.
