Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Alex Bradley is currently working on his PhD at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, after completing his AB in Earth and Planetary Sciences at Harvard in 1998. His studies focus on the use of lipid biomarkers in modern and ancient hydrothermal systems as tools for reconstructing microbial ecology and carbon cycling. Other interests include the use of organic chemistry for reconstructing major biogeochemical events in Earth history, and understanding the genetic basis of lipid biomarker synthesis.
