Research Interests
James Hollibaugh (Tim) is an oceanographer, microbial ecologist and geochemist interested in microbial foodwebs and the process of ammonia oxidation and ammonia oxidizing microorganisms (especially Thaumarchaeota) as they relate to nitrification and chemoautotrophy. All of my work in the Antarctic (I've also worked in the Arctic) has been done around Palmer Station, much of it in collaboration with PAL-LTER. I am an Emeritus Professor (Distinguished Research Professor), as of November 2019.
