We are pleased to welcome Daniel Stolper as an assistant professor in the department. Daniel is a geochemist interested in problems related to the rock record, microbiology, biogeochemical cycles, and isotope geochemistry. Daniel started at Berkeley on January 1st, 2017. Before this, he received a doctoral degree in geobiology from Caltech (2014) and completed a postdoc at Princeton University, as an NOAA Climate and Global Change Postdoctoral Fellow (2015-2016). We are very grateful to the Heising-Simons Foundation, UC Berkeley, and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory for awarding a grant of $1.9M to fund Daniel's isotope geochemistry laboratory. During this spring semester, Daniel is organizing, with Prof. Nick Swanson-Hysell and Prof. Seth Finnegan (Integrative Biology), a reading group on Earth History related studies, meeting every Friday at 3:00 and, with PhD student Marissa Tremblay and Prof. Don DePaolo, the isotope geochemistry seminar series, which meets on Wednesdays at 4:00 and to which all friends and alumni of the department are welcome.
