Hello! My name is Clint Miller. I am a geochemist at Rice University working on furthering our understanding of carbon in diverse geologic settings. While a PhD student at Rice I have participated in two primary expeditions:

1. To the Western Pacific Warm Water Pool (Offshore Papua New Guinea), and

2. Head Geochemist, aboard ice breaker Oden to the Arctic East Siberian continental shelf and slope. This Arctic expedition is completely rewriting our understanding of gas hydrates on Arctic slopes.
