This week we are joined by Dr Peter Crockford from Princeton University and the Weizmann Institute of Science. Peter is the author of 'Triple oxygen isotope evidence for limited mid-Proterozoic primary productivity'. Join us to discover more about the earth's biosphere 1.5 billion years ago. What evidence is there for fluctuating oxygen levels 2.5 billion years ago? How have computing techniques evolved over time? What is it like to work in two academic institutes? In this episode, Peter answers all of these questions and more.

We will also gain further insights into 'Triple oxygen isotope evidence for limited mid-Proterozoic primary productivity', its impacts and the motivation behind Peter's work.
