Hinrichs Lab - Organic Geochemistry
In the Hinrichs Lab, we are broadly concerned with organic matter in the environment and in geological systems. This naturally produced organic material, consisting of the fossilized remains of plants and animals, is on the one hand an important regulator of our planet’s redox balance and on the other hand a superb pool of information on geobiological processes. With our research we aim to decipher this information. As international group of chemists, geologists, oceanographers, and biologists, we are tackling exciting research problems in geobiology and biogeochemistry while crossing the boundaries of traditional scientific disciplines.
