A new paper from Laurence Yeung on the fundamentals of “clumped-isotope” fractionation, was recently accepted in Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta. It shows, through simple theoretical arguments, the factors influencing the occurrence of rare-isotope pairs in molecules when they are made. One might be able to base future tracers of biogeochemistry on these principles. One of the […]

About Laurence Yeung
My research focuses on Earth's atmospheric and biogeochemical cycles. Specifically, I use stable isotopes to understand processes ranging from stratospheric chemistry to carbon cycling in the oceans. My expertise also includes public engagement in science: I was a founding producer for PHD TV, an online-based science outreach venture led by Jorge Cham (creator of PHD Comics). My animated video, Teamwork in the Tropical Atlantic (a collaboration with Meg Rosenburg), was a finalist in the 2014 BLUE Ocean Film Festival and won second place in the 2014 Ocean180 video contest. I received my B.A. in chemistry from Oberlin College and Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the California Institute of Technology.
