Professor Frank T. Robb, University of Maryland

Frank is the co-chair of the workshop, and is leading our expedition. Frank is a regular in Uzon Caldera, and has made several expedition to the site since 1995.

Frank has been studying thermophiles for around twenty years, including their physiology, genomes, proteins, and ecology.


Professor Albert Colman, University of Chicago

Albert is organizing the expedition this year, and has accompanied Frank (and others) to Uzon several times. Albert was Frank's graduate student back in the day.


Alex Merkel, Winogradsky Institute of Microbiology

Alex graduated from Moscow State University, and is now a Ph.D. candidate at the Winogradsky Institute of Microbiology in Moscow. He is studying the functional diversity of methanogenic genes and culturing methane producing microorganisms.

He is also secretly the lead singer from Coldplay.


Anna Perevalova, Moscow State University

Anna graduated from Moscow State University and obtained her Ph.D. from Winogradsky Institute of Microbiology in Moscow. She is now a postdoctoral researcher at Winogradsky. Her specialty is growing extremely difficult organisms, and she also works with Alex on methanogens.


Sarah Griffis, Caltech and University of Chicago

Sarah is a senior at Caltech, and has been working in Albert's lab in Chicago for the summer doing DNA extractions.


Bo He, University of Chicago

Bo is a graduate student in Albert's lab; he studies the electochemistry of cellular redox metabolism, particularly as it pertains to metal chemistry. He did his MS at Chapel Hill on the kinetics of iron III and hydrogen sulphide in sediment formation. It's nice to have someone with a physical sciences background along for the trip!


Russell Neches, University of California, Davis

And, of course, me.
