Welcome to Pearson Lab!

Our ability to understand past, present and future environments depends on our ability to understand the biochemical complexity found in nature and its effects on the carbon cycle. Whether we are studying microbial pathways of carbon fixation, lipid distributions in marine sediments, or the oxygen requirements of individual enzymes, our goal is to understand how and why organisms leave particular chemical signals in the geologic record.
