It has just been announced that Romain Guilbaud has been honoured by the Geological Society of London. He will receive one of the Society's two President's Awards at a ceremony in Burlington House on 13 June 2012. The award is a personal 'gift' from the President, Bryan Lovell, and is made to scientists younger than 30.
Romain’s research in the School’s Geosciences Group focuses on the co-evolution of life and the planet in its early history just before hard-bodied creatures evolved (the Neoproterozoic – 1000-540 million years ago). He works on the evolving redox state of the ocean, including links to nutrient availability and oxygen production, on which life as we know it depends.
