In February 2006 Simon George left CSIRO to join Macquarie University in northern Sydney. There he started a new research group in organic geochemistry, which includes postgraduate students, working especially on research areas to do with the geochemical record of the early evolution of life, and bioremediation in cold climates.
At present we are a group of 10, including Professor Simon George, 4 PhD students, and several masters students (Master Resarch and Master Geoscience) and visitors.
