AGU 2014

Getting some good sandwiches with James at Giordano Bros (Pittsburgh-style eats). James had a great poster presentation about microbial sulfur cycling in his Pacific Northwest lakes.

Midwest Geobiology Symposium 2013

Greg Druschel and I convened the Second Annual Midwest Geobiology Symposium at IUPUI. The meeting was a big success.  We drew 90 participants from 20 schools in the Midwest.  We thank the Agouron Institute, IUPUI and OVCR for their support, and all who attended.  We’re looking forward to seeing everyone again next year in Chicago!
