Christine Foreman studies life at the end of the Earth – bacteria, biofilms, carbon dynamics and deep ice cores. She has active projects in the Arctic and the Antarctic, plus a sweet SubZero lab. She published this work in Science and Nature, but what she really cares about is empowering young academics, particularly women.
Christine is Associate Dean of Student Success and Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering and the Center for Biofilm Engineering at Montana State University.
Tenure Chasers helped Christine bring her work together in a new website and cleaned up her logo. The two elements we helped her emphasise were opportunities for young scholars and making her discoveries the hero of her lab story.
The Foreman Research Group logo is a snowflake, which symbolises the journey a scientist makes during their career. Snowflakes start off unique and delicate, but become part of large, powerful glaciers that change the world around them.
Anne-Lise, our Alaska-based photographer, edited a bunch of Christine’s images from the field and visited the Foreman Lab in Bozeman, MT to create a lot more. Together, they work well to both inspire and document the research.
