Dr. Jennifer A Roberts
- Vice Provost for Graduate Studies
- Natural Sciences and Mathematics
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.
I teach introductory geology, geomicrobiology, ethics and a range of specialty courses in at the intersection of energy and environment.
