Susan Lang (current director of NOSAMS) is a geochemist who investigates the interactions among water, rocks, and microbes. She characterizes the abundances and isotopes of carbon compounds to investigate the origins of organic molecules and life on our planet and others, how microbes survive in the rocky subsurface, and the role of water-rock interactions in the global carbon cycle.
