Biography

Oceans cover three quarters of the earth's surface. Biogeochemical processes in the ocean profoundly affect present day climate, as well as future climate change. For example, the ocean's biota mediates the atmospheric increase of the greenhouse gas CO2 by photosynthesis and subsequent sequestration of the fixed carbon in the deep ocean. The Neuer lab investigates various questions pertaining to the role of phytoplankton in mediating carbon flux, plankton ecology and trophic dynamics, in both the marine and freshwater environments. Neuer was the recipient of the Outstanding Achievement Award, ASU Commission on the Status of Women in 2009. She is the director of the environmental sciences graduate program in the School of Life Sciences, a mentor, Obama fellowship program, and Faculty Honors Advisor, with Barrett, The Honor's College. She is the ASU Representative, Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS) and an elected member of the national board of directors for the Association for Women in Sciences (AWIS).
