Kevin Posman is a Senior Research Associate at Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences, where he works in the air-sea exchange laboratory with Dr. Stephen Archer in the biogeochemistry wing of Bigelow Laboratory. The general focus of the laboratory is to understand the sources and controls of atmospherically active gases produced by marine microorganisms. This work helps build a cross-scale understanding of the impacts/feedbacks of climate change, particularly ocean acidification, on critical biogeochemical cycles. Kevin is also part of the team researching how seaweed may be able to help reduce carbon emissions from cows.
Kevin was a speaker at the 2022 Maine Science Festival 5 Minute Genius event.
