A. Hope Jahren PhD
Professor of Geobiology
My research focuses on living and fossil organisms, and how they are chemically linked to the global environment. Using measurements of the stable isotopes of carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen and oxygen my group is working to elucidate information about metabolism and environment, both in the Human environment, and through Geologic Time.
Some recent research projects include analyzing the carbon isotope compostion of terrestrial land plants, the carbon isotope composition of ancient terrestrial organic matter, and the Arctic Eocene, as well as others. You can read about these projects on my Research Page.
