DRI at AGU 2018

  • Published in Featured Researchers
Alison Murray, PhD, and Postdoc Zoe Harrold, PhD, work in DRI’s microbiology lab. They’ll both be at AGU discussing research about detecting life in extreme environments

Fifty-five faculty and graduate student researchers are representing DRI on papers and posters at the 2018 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting in Washington DC on December 10th-14th. This annual conference brings together some 25,000 researchers in the earth and space sciences from around the world. 

The sessions and posters listed indicate speakers and first authors from DRI. Be sure to add these sessions to your conference schedule! Also, stop by the DRI booth (#1814) in the Academic Showcase for a chance to meet faculty and learn more about DRI research projects.
