Postdoc | University of Southern California | firstname.lastname@example.org
I am a Simons Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow in Microbial Ecology at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. I completed a Ph.D. in Climate Physics and Chemistry in the Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at MIT. I use theory and mathematical models to improve our understanding of the connections between microbial ecosystems, global biogeochemistry, and the climate system.
