Dr. Brandi Kiel Reese, University of Southern California
Biogeography of Geochemical Characterizations and Molecular Communities within Shallow and Deep Subsurface Sediments
Dr. Reese is a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Southern California, Department of Biological Sciences. Her research interests include sulfur biogeochemical cycling and sediment diagenesis with emphasis on the interaction of microbiology and geochemistry. Currently, Dr. Reese is focused on the structure and function of microbial communities and what geochemical characteristics lead to their biogeographical diversity.
