Background Information

S. Leigh McCallister earned her Ph.D. in marine science in 2002 from the College of William and Mary (VIMS) with a concentration in biological oceanography. She is interested in bacterial transformations of organic matter (OM) in fluvial, estuarine, coastal and open ocean ecosystems. Her work integrates multiple aspects of microbial ecology, organic geochemistry (lipid biomarkers), and isotope geochemistry (D14C, d13C, d15N).
