Huber, Julie  

(508) 289-2556
Bio: Julie is Senior Scientist in Marine Chemistry and Geochemistry at WHOI. She received her Ph.D. in Oceanography from the University of Washington. Her research strives to unravel the mystery of what microbes live in oceanic crustal environments, how they harness energy from fluids and rocks, and how they contribute to chemical cycling that influence the broader ocean system. Julie also serves as the associate director of the NSF Science and Technology Center for Dark Energy Biosphere Investigations. Julie has participated in many deep-sea expeditions using human-occupied, remote, and autonomous vehicles to study life beneath the seafloor. A 2007 NASA Astrobiology Institute postdoctoral fellow, she also received the L’Oréal USA for Women in Science fellowship. Julie previously served as a member of the NAS Committee on Scientific Ocean Drilling and currently serves as a member of the NAS Committee on Planetary Science and Astrobiology Decadal Survey.
