Siobhan (Sasha) is a lecturer and ARC DECRA Fellow in environmental mineralogy. She uses the crystal chemical and isotopic information preserved within minerals to study biogeochemical element cycling at planetary surfaces.

Sasha is a low-temperature geochemist specialised in environmental mineralogy. She uses the crystal chemical and isotopic information preserved within minerals to study biogeochemical element cycling at planetary surfaces.

Her research interests include understanding the influence of chemical weathering on biogeochemical nutrient cycling, examining the origins and mechanisms of biomineralisation, and unraveling the role of mineral behaviour in sustaining and preserving evidence of microbial life under extreme conditions on Earth and other planets.
