Julie Cosmidis - University of Oxford
As our ESSI seminar speaker this week, we are delighted to invite Dr Julie Cosmidis, Associate Professor of Geobiology at the University of Oxford. Dr Cosmidis' research focuses on microbial biomineralization, one of the mechanisms by which microorganisms impact their environment, and it is increasingly regarded as an important driving force in the chemical, geological and biological evolution of Earth throughout its history. In particular, this research focuses on deciphering the molecular mechanisms involved in microbial biomineralization, understanding its impact on past and present environments, and using it as a tool for tracing microbial activity in the geological record.
