Natalya Evans is a chemical oceanographer interested in the cycling of trace, redox-active compounds. On this cruise, she will assist in quantifying iodine and iodate collaboration with the NIRVANA lab group’s measurement of iodate reduction rates and the Bablab’s iodine incubation.

Natalya received her BS in Chemistry with emphasis in Materials as well as Environmental Analysis from Harvey Mudd College. She is beginning a PhD program at the University of Southern California in the fall, likely on sulfur or copper cycling.
