Tenure-Track and Research Faculty
Currently, CLEE houses fourteen permanent faculty from the departments of Biology, Chemistry and Physics. These faculty oversee roughly 80 personnel each year, including students and staff.
Daniel Ballhorn - Biology
The effects of CO2 and soil salinity on plants and plant-microbe interactions.
Mike Bartlett - Biology
Basic mechanisms and origins of eukaryotic-type transcription systems.
Brad Buckley - Biology
Physiological responses of marine species to elevated temperature and other stressors.
Sarah Eppley - Biology
Ecology and evolution of angiosperms and bryophytes, and understanding the roll of stress in extreme environments.
Dirk Iwata-Reuyl - Chemistry
The chemistry and enzymology of RNA modification.
Annie Lindgren - CLEE Director
Deep sea biodiversity, cephalopod taxonomy and evolution.
Jay Nadeau - Physics
Imaging techniques and instruments for bacterial imaging in extreme environments and space.
Brooke Napier - Biology
Immune system regulation during infection.
John Perona - Chemistry
Quantitative biology of the protein translation apparatus.
Jason Podrabsky - Biology
Physiological response and adaptation to life in extreme environments, particularly in killifish and their larvae.
