BA in Ecology, Population, Organismal and Evolutionary Biology, University of Colorado, Boulder 1999.
Claudia’s PhD was focused on the structure elucidation of novel marine natural products using NMR and mass spectrometry. She has since applied her expertise in natural ecosystems tracking the transformations of organic matter through specific compound analyses via HPLC with a variety of detection modes, community-level chemical characterization of extractable material via MS-based meta-metabolomics, and by monitoring shifts in the overall molecular functionality of organic matter using NMR. She provides analytical research services, training and maintenance for the MS, NMR and optical instruments, and assists with the CIF’s Summer Schools.
