About the speaker

Caroline Slomp is Professor of Marine Biogeochemistry at the Department of Earth Sciences. Her research focuses on improving the quantitative understanding of the cycling of elements that are important to life in marine environments. In her research group, field and laboratory work are typically integrated with modeling. The central theme is the assessment of the response of ancient and modern environments to perturbation. Low oxygen marine systems are currently a key focus.
