Abstract:

Katrina J. Edwards (1968–2014) was a force in the environmental microbiology world with diverse training in the fields of geology, isotope geochemistry, and geomicrobiology. She founded the Center for Dark Energy Biosphere Investigations with the National Science Foundation, which has produced over 300 publications on the biological, hydrological, and geochemical processes that occur in the subsurface of the Earth. This chapter is a personal reflection from John R. Spear on Dr. Edwards’ life, career, and how she continues to inspire a new generation of researchers in geobiology and science in general.
