postdocs, etc. invited.


More about Phoebe Lam:

Dr. Phoebe Lam is a marine geochemist who specializes in the study of
marine particles and their role in the biogeochemical cycling of major and
minor elements in the ocean. Her research interests include chemical
speciation and bioavailability of marine particulate iron, efficiency of
the biological carbon pump, the past and present role of iron in
stimulating primary production, and the influence of major particle
composition on particle export and trace metal scavenging. Dr. Lam is
actively involved in the International GEOTRACES program, which has greatly
expanded our understanding of the cycling of trace elements in the ocean,
and continues to address new questions about the role of particles in
marine systems. She received her Ph.D in Earth and Planetary Science from
the University of California, Berkeley in 2005. She then held positions as
a Postdoctoral Researcher and Assistant Scientist in the Marine Chemistry
and Geochemistry department at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
before joining the faculty at UC Santa Cruz in 2014.

About John Hedges and the Hedges Visiting Scholar Program:

John Hedges was one of the world’s leading marine organic matter
geochemists and was a member of the Chemical Oceanography faculty at the
University of Washington from 1976 to 2002. With over 135 publications,
John Hedges was included on the ISI’s list of Most Highly Cited in the
field of Geosciences. He served on the editorial board of Geochimica et
Cosmochimica Acta, Marine Chemistry, and Limnology and Oceanography and he
was on the National Research Council, Ocean Studies Board from 1980 to
1991. He received numerous honors and awards, including the Triebs Medal
(Geochemical Society) for career contributions to Organic Geochemistry.

A fund was created in his memory to allow graduate students to annually
invite and host prominent scientists to be a visiting scholar. His visit
will include research seminars, group lunches and dinners with graduate
students and individual meetings with students and faculty. The previous
John Hedges Visiting Scholars were Dr. Cindy Lee (2010) and Dr. Michael
Behrenfeld (2016). We look forward to continuing this honor on an annual
