Event Description

Join us on Monday April 27th at 1pm US Pacific time (GMT-8), 8am New Zealand time (Tuesday!) for a LIVE event with Astrobiologist and geomicrobiologist Dr. Kathleen Campbell of the University of Auckland, New Zealand!

The interaction of ancient organisms with their surrounding environments is the broad theme of Kathy’s research interests. She is particularly intrigued by crustal fluid-sediment-organism interactions, i.e. the signatures of ‘extreme environments’ in the geologic record. Such studies have implications for hydrocarbons and minerals exploration, sedimentary basin analysis, and evaluation of global biodiversity, paleobiogeography and evolution. Biogenic signals recognised in deposits from extreme environments on Earth are used by scientists as analogues in the search for past life on early Earth and perhaps other planets like Mars.
