Position: Department of Geosciences
Research Summary: Danielle Santiago Ramos' research is mostly focused on the application of stable and radiogenic isotope systems to investigate material exchanges between the oceans and the solid Earth, and how these processes affect Earth’s climate over geologic time. Her projects have ranged from tracking secondary silicate formation through geochemical analyses of marine sedimentary systems to investigating the deep-cycling of metals and volatiles in subduction zones. Dr. Santiago Ramos is also interested in the application of geochemical techniques to questions in biology (e.g. homeostasis in aquatic organisms) and environmental justice (e.g. sources of Pb contamination in drinking water). In addition to research, Danielle is passionate about teaching, and works to improve the access and retention of Latinx women in higher education.
