Geochemistry & Biogeochemistry

Home / Graduate Study / Graduate Research / Geochemistry & Biogeochemistry

ASU has a strong history in connecting chemistry, biochemistry and geology.  Our students are studying the materials chemistry of the geosphere, and exploring new ways of performing chemical reactions inspired by geology, and how chemistry, biology and geology sustain life on earth, and possibly beyond.
