We seek to better understand the interplay between microbial metabolism and environmental processes. The Dawson lab utilizes techniques including microscopy, microbial culturing, lipid extraction and analysis, and stable isotope geochemistry with H, C, N and S to study microbial ecology, microbial transformation of organic and inorganic molecules and the molecular and isotopic imprints microbes leave behind in the geologic record.
