Chadlin M. Ostrander

PhD Candidate

I started as a Ph.D. student in the fall of 2016, but have worked in the Anbar Lab since my freshman year at ASU (Fall 2012). My research focuses on Earth’s oxygenation history - how and when free oxygen first became available and how its availability has evolved ever since. To this end, I have been involved in the development and application of iron (Fe), molybdenum (Mo), thallium (Tl), and uranium (U) isotope ratios as proxies for perturbations in ancient oxygen.

When not doing science, a few things I enjoy are being with my family and friends, good music, hunting, and baseball.
