Personal profile


Dr Dodd is an astrobiologist, who utilises the geological record to unravel how life came to be, and how it makes Earth habitable. During his PhD at University College London, he discovered the oldest known fossils on Earth, which received global media attention in 2017. He subsequently moved to China University of Geoscience in Wuhan, where he developed novel geochemical tools to reconstruct changes in ocean nutrient levels. He is currently a Forrest Fellow at UWA working on novel techniques which can reconstruct the temperature and chemistry of the atmosphere and oceans billions of years ago.
