More about Dr. H. Abby Ren:
Dr. Ren is a marine geochemist who specializes in biogeochemical cycling
and uses nitrogen isotopes and numerical models to investigate the modern
and ancient environment. Her research is motivated by a desire to
understand the interaction between biology and environmental conditions
through the course of Earth history and to identify the biogeochemical
processes and feedbacks that stabilize the Earth system. Her research is
structured around developing and using proxies to track the fluxes and
cycles of biologically important elements. She received her Ph.D in
geoscience from Princeton University in 2010. She then worked at
Lamont-Doherty Earch Observatory as a NOAA Climate and Global Change
Postdoctoral Fellowship and held a Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowship
from the Research Center for Environmental Changes, Academia Sinica,
Taiwan. She has been a professor at the National Taiwan University since

*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. The 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), Dr. Michael
Behrenfeld (2016), and Dr. Phoebe Lam (2017). We look forward to continuing
this honor on an annual basis.
