Andrew Knoll’s research focuses on the early evolution of life, Earth's early environmental history, and, especially, the interconnections between the two. Paleontological discoveries in Knoll’s lab include ca. 800 million year old microfossil assemblages of Svalbard, from which basic principles of Precambrian paleoecology were developed; exceptionally preserved 1500 million year old fossils from Siberia and northern Australia that provide some of our oldest evidence of eukaryotic biology; and phosphatized, silicified, and compressed fossils from the 632-551 million year old Doushantuo Formation, China, that record both early animals and a terminal Proterozoic radiation of algae. Knoll has also served on the science team for NASA’s MER rover mission to Mars.
