Brent Christner

Associate Professor 

Description of Research

The Christner Research Group is interested in the physiology, ecology, biogeochemistry, and molecular adaptations of microorganisms inhabiting environments of the cryosphere and atmosphere. Using a combination of laboratory and field-based research, we seek to elucidate the novel properties of microorganisms that survive under low extremes of temperature and water/energy availability.
