This week's Thermal Biology Institute features Dr. Alysia Cox, an Assistant Professor of Environmental Chemistry at Montana Tech. Her talk is, "Coevolution of Earth’s Chemistry and Life: A Metalloprotein Perspective" and will be held Monday, November 9th at 3:10pm in 108 Plant Bioscience Building. Dr. Cox just joined the Chemistry and Geochemistry Department at Tech this fall. Dr. Cox's research focuses on proteins, the genome products of microbes, and their interactions with major and minor element cycles, both modern and ancient. She combines geochemistry with biochemistry to determine active mechanisms of chemical reactions with wide application to the environment. Dr. Cox works with a wide variety of systems, including terrestrial hot springs, alpine lakes and springs, marine realms, serpentinizing systems, acid mine drainage, and deep life environments.
