    Claresta Joe-Wong

    Ph.D. Student in Geological and Environmental Sciences

    BioI am broadly interested in characterizing natural systems on a molecular level, using both stable metal isotope fractionation and spectroscopic techniques. I entered the department of Geological Sciences at Stanford University as a graduate student in fall 2014. I am currently working with Professors Gordon Brown and Kate Maher on the reduction of chromium(VI), a common environmental pollutant, by aqueous iron(II) complexes and iron(II)-bearing clay minerals.

    As an undergrad, I majored in chemistry at Princeton University and worked in the group of Geosciences Professor Satish Myneni, who sparked my interest in geochemistry. My research projects in the Myneni group included developing a method to quantify thiols in natural systems and characterizing halogenation of natural organic matter.
