1st Year Ph.D Student
My name is Daianne, and I am originally from Brazil, where I obtained a BSc in Geology and an MSc in Geochemistry. During my studies at Texas A&M University, I transitioned from U-Pb zircon geochronology to organic geochemistry. Isotopes are my favorite tools to (1) research how biogeochemical cycles operated in past climate systems and (2) anchor these key climate events to precise timeframes. As a member of the Johnston lab, I aim to become proficient in using stable isotope geochemistry to address geobiological questions across different time scales and numerical modeling.
