Caltech researchers and engineers on campus and at JPL, which Caltech manages for NASA, pursue science-driven solutions to mitigate climate change. In Conversations on Sustainability, you will hear directly from Caltech experts about their progress and can ask your own questions.

In the fifth conversation in this series, Caltech scientists and MacArthur Fellows Dianne Newman and Victoria Orphan speak with science writer Lori Dajose (BS '15) about the role of microorganisms in sustaining life on a warming planet, from enabling precision agriculture to cycling carbon in the ocean to mitigating the greenhouse gases produced by livestock.


This is a free event, but registration is required.

This series is presented by the Caltech Science Exchange, which brings expert insight to the scientific questions that define our time. The Science Exchange offers trustworthy answers, clear explanations, and fact-driven conversation on critical topics in science and technology.
