Laura Meredith (PI)


I am an interdisciplinary scientist working on research questions at the intersection of environmental microbiology and atmospheric chemistry.  I am an Assistant Professor of Ecosystem Genomics in the School of Natural Resources and the Environment (SNRE) and the BIO5 Institute. Beforehand, I was an Associate Research Scientist with Scott Saleska (University of Arizona) and an Atmospheric and Geospace Sciences NSF Postdoctoral Fellow in Paula Welander’s geobiology lab (Stanford University) and Joe Berry‘s trace gas lab (Carnegie Institution for Science). I earned my PhD in Climate Physics and Chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with Ron Prinn and my BS in Chemistry from the California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly), San Luis Obispo.
