Research Summary: Dr. Ashley Maloney joined the Zhang lab in spring 2018. She is interested in how microbes and their biomolecules respond to change and developing tools to help characterize microbial metabolism in modern and past environments. She uses microbiology and stable isotope geochemistry in controlled laboratory studies to complement field observations along physical and metabolic gradients. Ashley earned her PhD in Chemical Oceanography from the University of Washington, Seattle Washington, and her undergraduate and Master’s degrees from Stanford University, Stanford California.
