Veronique Oldham is currently a Post-doctoral Scholar at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Veronique received her Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry at the University of Toronto, and a PhD in Oceanography working with Dr. Luther at the University of Delaware. Her current oceanographic research unites two strands of biogeochemical inquiry: the impacts of changing redox conditions on trace metal speciation and cycling, and the role of heterogeneous complexing agents in the coupled biogeochemical cycles of trace elements. While at sea, Veronique will measure sedimentary and water column solid- and soluble-phase iron and manganese speciation, and will utilize spectrophotometric methods to examine the kinetics of manganese oxidation and reduction as it is related to anoxygenic methanogenesis along the northern California and Oregon Cascadia continental margin.
