Emily is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Astrobiogeochemistry Laboratory at JPL. Her research is driven by understanding how microbes and the earth interact across spatial scales, within landscapes, and through time. Using laboratory- and field-based studies, she integrates genomic and geochemical techniques to illuminate subsurface organo-mineral interfaces and biogeochemical processes within alluvial environments.
At JPL, Emily is a member of the SHERLOC Instrument Team on Mars 2020 investigating the biosignature preservation potential of magnesium carbonates in Mars-analog environments and rock-regolith geochemical transitions in Jezero crater.
