Advisory Board Bio: Rebecca Robinson

Rebecca_RobinsonRebecca Robinson is associate professor at the URI Graduate School of Oceanography. She studies the ways ocean biology and chemistry have varied with respect to large-scale climate change in the past. She is particularly interested in the interactions of large-scale ocean circulation and biology in regulating atmospheric carbon dioxide and ocean oxygen concentrations.

A geochemist, Robinson develops and implements novel geochemical tools to assist in reconstructing the cycling of nitrogen and carbon in the ocean.

She received an undergraduate degree in geology from Bryn Mawr College, an M.S. in earth sciences from the University of Southern California, and a Ph.D. in marine geology and geochemistry from the University of Michigan.
