Karina K. Sand
Lektor / Associate professor


I am an experimentalist in the cross field between geology, mineralogy, interfacial geochemistry, geomicrobiology and chemistry. In my group we apply in-situ molecular- to macro scale techniques to study bio-mineral associations. 

Currently we are focused on establishing fundamental information on how and why minerals can preserve DNA and proteins across time and space and how bacteria can utilize mineral adsorbed DNA.

For implications and specific projects check below and the group page for more about us. I try to blog about ups and downs, but have to realize that it is mostly the positive stories that makes it there.
