Biography

Dr. Templeton is a Geomicrobiologist with a special focus on microbe-mineral interactions. At the University of Colorado, Alexis Templeton has established field and laboratory based studies of biomineralization processes in subsurface terrestrial systems in Colorado, the High Arctic and Oman. These projects include mechanistic studies of water/rock interactions, such as the hydration of mafic and ultramafic rocks, and the isolation and characterization of Fe, Mn, S and hydrogen cycling bacteria dependent upon geological energy sources. Prof. Templeton trains students and postdoctoral scholars in the realms of geochemistry, geomicrobiology and astrobiology and supervises the Raman Chemical Imaging laboratory. Prof. Templeton is also the Principal Investigator of the 'Rock-Powered Life' NASA Astrobiology Institute.
