Project Description

Dr. McDermott is a geochemist and an assistant professor in the Earth and Environmental Sciences Department at Lehigh University. She earned her B.A. in chemistry from Dartmouth College, an M.S. in geochemical systems from the University of New Hampshire, and a Ph.D. in chemical oceanography from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Joint Program. Dr. McDermott received the Carl-Gustaf Rossby Award, given for the best Ph.D. thesis within MIT’s Program in Atmospheres, Oceans, and Climate, and is a National Academy of Sciences Kavli Fellow. She investigates the aqueous and volatile geochemistry and biogeochemistry of seafloor hydrothermal vents and ancient terrestrial fracture waters tapped by deep mines. The multidisciplinary approach Dr. McDermott uses in her work carries over into her teaching and mentoring, where she engages students with fundamental and applied science in the classroom and in individual research projects in her lab.
