Virginia Gewin introduces microbial Gerdhard Jessen (Austral University of Chile, Valdivia) who studies possible effects of climate change on microorganisms in deserts, hot springs and hydrothermal vents and climate change (Where I Work, Nature, January 16, 2023).

Gewin tells us about the change in his research and what he has studied subsequently. Gewin encapsulates his goal which "is to learn more about subsurface microbes in extreme environments" in order to understand "how microbial forces shaped the planet and how these communities might shift in the future with climate change."
