About Our Lab

In the Valentine Lab, we study the interactions of microbes, molecules, and the natural world. We seek to answer questions fundamental to biogeochemistry, ecology and evolution by applying modern tools of chemistry, molecular biology and oceanography. We blend field work at sites around the world with laboratory investigations at our labs in idyllic Santa Barbara, CA. We also believe in the effective communication of science and the application of science to solve real-world problems. Please explore this website to find out more about us!
