Biogeochemistry, wetlands, contaminants, bioremediation
Linden is researching iron cycling in subalpine wetlands in Colorado’s Fraser Experiential Forest. She is interested in how changing climate patterns may influence microbial iron reduction rates and dissolved organic mater flux. She hopes her research will inform the basic biogeochemical question of carbon stabilization in the terrestrial environment. Linden seeks to leverage biogeochemical systems to create simple solutions to problems involving environmental degradation and pollution. By applying the knowledge she generates in her studies of iron and dissolved organic matter to pollutant fate and transport or alternative technologies, such as microbial fuel cells, she hopes to help the world meet the challenges presented by climate change under a booming global population.
