Dr Sarah Greene

Biography

I am a Natural Environment Research Council Independent Research Fellow at the University of Bristol. Broadly, my research aims to further our mechanistic and quantitative understanding of how and why carbon moves through the Earth system and how the carbon cycle has changed over Earth history. I employ a range of field geology, laboratory, database, and, especially, modelling techniques to address the following research themes:

1) Resolving climate and marine carbon cycle feedbacks over rapid to geological timescales

2) geobiology, biogeochemical cycling in marine sediments and reading the carbonate sedimentary record (in particular stromatolites and authigenic carbonates)

3) causes, consequences, and carbon cycle perturbations associated with marine mass extinctions

4) the co-evolution of life and the carbon cycle
