O. Roger Anderson is a microbiologist at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory who studies bacteria, amoebas, fungi and other microorganisms. Lately he has been thinking about how tiny organisms that inhabit the vast northern tundra regions could contribute to changing climate, since, like humans, they breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide.

|Nigel D'Souza||Postdoctoral Research Scientist||I am interested in studying the impacts of natural and anthropogenic events on microbial communities in aquatic ecosystems – and eventually, the consequences of changes in microbial communities on other organisms and processes. My work at LDEO involves studying the impacts of oil and natural gas inputs on the microbial and planktonic community in the Gulf of Mexico, focusing on changes in community composition, activity, and fate of the organisms.|
