Naohiro Yoshida (Senior Advisor)

Tokyo Institute of Technology

Naohiro Yoshida is a Professor in two environmental departments and also a Principal Investigator of Earth-Life Science Institute at Tokyo Institute of Technology, Tokyo and Yokohama. He is one of the leading biogeochemists in the field of global environmental analysis with isotopes of bioelements. He has introduced the isotopomers and isotopologues, with MIF, Clumped, and PSIA, as powerful tracers to help reduce uncertainties regarding the biological, chemical, physical, and anthropogenic source and sink processes of environmental molecules especially global warming related species. He has published over 200 papers including 8 published in Nature and Science, 14 patents, 30 book chapters, edited 6 books, been invited for keynote talks by a number of international scientific conferences. He was recently elected as a Science Advisory Panel member of GEO-6, UNEP. When he was the President of GSJ, the Goldschmidt Conference 2016 was decided to be held in Yokohama, and the MOUs among GS, EAG, and GSJ were signed.

The Geochemical Society of Japan

The Geochemical Society of Japan (GSJ) was established in 1953, to promote geochemistry in Japan. Current membership is 1000 scientists, technologists, and students. The GSJ is in partnership with the Goldschmidt Conference and will act as the local organizer at the Goldschmidt Conference 2016 at Yokohama, Japan.

Laurie Reisberg

Laurie Reisberg (GS President, Liason Committee)

Laurie Reisberg obtained her BSc at the University of Michigan in 1979 and her PhD from Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University in 1988. After post-docs at the Institut du Physique du Globe in Paris and at Lamont-Doherty, she joined the Centre de Recherches Pétrographiques et Géochimiques, a research laboratory of the French national science agency (CNRS) and the Université de Lorraine, in Nancy, France. Her specialities are radiogenic isotopes and highly siderophile element geochemistry. In the early part of her career, her work was centered on mantle geochemistry, including studies of the formation and evolution of the non-cratonic lithosphere and of basaltic magmatism. She has also worked on erosion and how it is recorded in the marine radiogenic isotopic record, nucelosynthethic anomalies in meteorites, and the radiometric dating and source tracing of ore deposits and, most recently, of oils.

Shuhei Ono (Liason Committee)

MIT

Shuhei Ono is Associate Professor in Low Temperature Geochemistry at the Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His research group develops and applies novel isotope proxies to trace evolution and interaction between microbe and geochemistry. Recent research topics include application of tunable laser spectroscopy for precise measurements of clumped methane isotopologue and its application to define diverse origin of methane in the environment. He is a co-chair for Boston Goldschmidt 2018

Barbara Sherwood Lollar (Liason Committee)

University of Toronto

Barbara Sherwood Lollar CC, University Professor in Earth Sciences, University of Toronto is a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union (2015), the Geochemical Society (2019) and European Association of Geochemistry (2019). She is Co-Director of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR) program Earth 4D – Subsurface Science and Exploration.

Sherwood Lollar’s pioneering work establishing the principles for using isotopic tracers to identify, and most importantly quantify, microbial and chemical transformation of groundwater contaminants has had a global impact in the field of drinking water remediation. Deeper in the Earth’s crust, her work coupling investigations of the deep subsurface carbon, hydrogen, and sulfur cycles with noble gas isotopic tracers elucidates water-rock reactions producing hydrogen and methane rich environments in the terrestrial subsurface, contributing to a transformed understanding of global habitability, and the sustainability of subsurface microbial communities.

Recent awards include 2019 NSERC Gerhard Herzberg Gold Medal, 2019 C.C. Patterson Award, 2018 Logan Medal, 2016 NSERC John Polanyi Award, 2016 Bancroft Award, 2014 International Helmholtz Fellowship, and 2012 Eni Award for Protection of the Environment.

Roberta L. Rudnick

Roberta L. Rudnick (Liason Committee)

UC Santa Barbara, GS President

Roberta Rudnick is a professor in the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Her research focuses on the origin and evolution of the continents, particularly the lower continental crust and the underlying mantle lithosphere. Emphasis is placed on integration of data from a wide diversity of sources, including petrography, petrology, major and trace element geochemistry, stable and radiogenic isotope geochemistry, and geophysics in order to determine the bulk composition of the crust, the processes that have influenced its composition through time, and why the Earth has continents. Roberta is an elected Fellow of a number of professional societies, including the Geochemical Society and the European Association of Geochemistry, and is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the US National Academy of Sciences, and a foreign associate of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
