Kim Lau, assistant professor at the University of Wyoming

Professor Kim Lau (Ph.D. Stanford)  recently joined us from the University of California Riverside. Kim studies the causes and consequences of environmental change on life and biogeochemical cycles, using the geochemistry of ancient sedimentary rocks. One of her objectives is to  decipher the causes of anoxia in the Phanerozoic and the pattern and extent of ocean oxygenation in the Neoproterozoic, and their links to animal evolution and extinction. She investigates changes in marine redox conditions in the context of fluctuations in other global biogeochemical cycles, and their relationship to geologic drivers such as climate change, volcanism, glaciation, and tectonics.

Kim will be teaching Biogeochemistry this semester, and will teach Geochemical Cycles and the Earth System next semester .
