Jennifer A. Roberts

Specialty

Geomicrobiology

Background

Dr. Roberts earned her Ph.D. from the University of Texas in 2000.

Research Interests

My research program focuses broadly on microbe:mineral interactions and the geological and ecological implications of these interactions in subsurface environments. My program currently has three separate but interrelated thrusts--microbial attachment to mineral surfaces; nutrient-driven microbial silicate weathering, and low temperature-dolomite precipitation.
