Welcome! The Anbarlab at Arizona State University is a diverse group of graduate and undergraduate students, postdocs, and research scientists, committed to exploring our world and developing applied solutions to the challenges we face. We hail from the fields of geology, chemistry, forensic science, and education. Take a look around and get in touch if what we do piques your interest. We're glad you found us!
