About us


Our group includes the graduate and undergraduate students, visiting scholars, and post-docs working with professors Boz Wing and Galen Halverson. The research carried out by the group is diverse and interdisciplinary, but the unifying thread is the study of the Precambrian Earth System. Key themes include the progressive oxygenation of the Earth surface environment, the record and climatic consequences of supercontinental breakup, the unique mineralizing environments of the Precambrian, and the cause, effects, and record of snowball Earth events. While a large part of our work is based on fieldwork on Archean and Proterozoic rocks, another important avenue includes the study of modern microbial systems and laboratory experiments to inform the field datasets that we generate.
