Topic of Lecture: Mechanistic Insights into Mediation of Carbonate Mineral Formation by Microbial Surfaces

Lecturer: Prof. Jennifer Ann Roberts

Time of Lecture: Friday, Mar. 30, 2018, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.

Location of Lecture: Mingbian Building D404

Organization of Lecturer: University of Kansas, the United States

About the Lecturer:

Jennifer Ann Roberts graduated from University of Texas at Austin in 2000 with a doctor’s degree in geology. She has been a professor at the University of Kansas since 2001 and is now the chair of Department of Geology. Dr Roberts specializes in hydrochemistry and microbial geochemistry, bridging basic and applied science and focusing on the role of microorganisms on mineral chemistry and weathering as it applies to carbon sequestration, petroleum reservoir diagenesis, paleoclimate, and water quality from the nano- to landscape scales. Her program mainly covers three areas: microbial attachment to mineral surfaces; nutrient-driven microbial silicate weathering, and low temperature-dolomite precipitation. She has been awarded by more than 20 funded projects by National Science Foundation (NSF) and American Chemical Society (ACS), and has published more than 40 papers in AAPG Bulletin, Journal of Sedimentary Research, and Geobiology, etc.

All faculties and students are welcome!
