Astrobiology Science Conference, Chicago

Slide1

The Astrobiology Science Conference 2015 (AbSciCon2015) was held at the Hilton in Chicago on June 15-19. The conference brings together scientists who work on the interdisciplinary field of astrobiology, and the focus of AbSciCon 2015 was on habitability in our solar system and beyond, and the origin and evolution of life on early Earth.

On Tuesday, I gave a talk on my recent work on the microbial contribution to ooid formation from a Pigeon Cay in the Bahamas and its broader implications for the meaning of these enigmatic grains in the Geological Record.
