Kaitlin studies the interplay between hydrological, geochemical, and biological processes during low-temperature serpentinization to understand continued habitability of rocky bodies. Her research focuses primarily on coupled iron, nitrogen, and sulfur cycling in biologically active serpentinite aquifers and biosignature formation in water-rock ecosystems.
