About Extremofiles

I am a geology student working on my PhD in geomicrobiology/biogeochemistry. I am interested in microbial weathering in volcanic hydrothermal settings.

I am starting this blog not because I know everything, but because I know that I want to improve my writing. I hope that this serves to improve my ability to synthesize information and makes sense of the things I read every week. If in the process I happen to increase someone else's knowledge, that's awesome. If I make mistakes, feel free to point them out.

And if you happen to like my writing, and want to offer me a job, feel free to email me at: easternalbanianophiolite AT yahoo DOT com. I will be in need of a position come May 2012.
