Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Ecology
  • Gene

Victoria J. Orphan mainly investigates Archaea, Anaerobic oxidation of methane, Ecology, Methane and Anoxic waters. The Archaea study combines topics in areas such as Microorganism and Ribosomal DNA. Victoria J. Orphan interconnects Deltaproteobacteria, Biochemistry and Methanogenesis in the investigation of issues within Anaerobic oxidation of methane.

Her Ecology research incorporates themes from Proteobacteria and Symbiosis. Her work in Methane addresses subjects such as Environmental chemistry, which are connected to disciplines such as Early Earth. Her Anoxic waters research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Sulfate-reducing bacteria, Mineralogy and Cold seep.

Her most cited work include:

  • Methane-consuming archaea revealed by directly coupled isotopic and phylogenetic analysis. (819 citations)
  • Manganese- and Iron-Dependent Marine Methane Oxidation (614 citations)
  • Comparative Analysis of Methane-Oxidizing Archaea and Sulfate-Reducing Bacteria in Anoxic Marine Sediments (541 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Her primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Archaea, Anaerobic oxidation of methane, Environmental chemistry and Methane. Her work on Ecosystem as part of general Ecology research is frequently linked to Microbial mat, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. Her Archaea study incorporates themes from Microorganism, Syntrophy and Deltaproteobacteria.

Her work on Methanotroph as part of general Anaerobic oxidation of methane research is often related to Hydrate Ridge, thus linking different fields of science. When carried out as part of a general Environmental chemistry research project, her work on Biogeochemical cycle is frequently linked to work in Biogeosciences, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. The Methane study combines topics in areas such as Deep sea, Oceanography, Anoxic waters and Carbon cycle.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (30.95%)
  • Archaea (30.95%)
  • Anaerobic oxidation of methane (26.19%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Environmental chemistry (24.76%)
  • Archaea (30.95%)
  • Methane (21.43%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Her primary areas of study are Environmental chemistry, Archaea, Methane, Anaerobic oxidation of methane and Environmental science. Her Environmental chemistry research incorporates elements of Fractionation, Adenosine Phosphosulfate and Microbial metabolism. Her study on Archaea is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Organic molecules.

Her Methanogenesis study in the realm of Methane interacts with subjects such as Hydrate Ridge. Her Anaerobic oxidation of methane study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Deltaproteobacteria, Diazotroph and 16S ribosomal RNA. Victoria J. Orphan combines subjects such as Symbiosis, Microbial ecology and Microbial population biology with her study of Ecology.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Scientists' Warning to Humanity: Microorganisms and Climate Change (263 citations)
  • Anaerobic methane oxidation coupled to manganese reduction by members of the Methanoperedenaceae (48 citations)
  • Age Mosaicism across Multiple Scales in Adult Tissues (48 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Ecology

Victoria J. Orphan mainly focuses on Archaea, Environmental chemistry, Anaerobic oxidation of methane, Bacteria and Methane. Victoria J. Orphan undertakes interdisciplinary study in the fields of Archaea and Birnessite through her works. Her studies in Environmental chemistry integrate themes in fields like Fractionation, Isotope fractionation and Adenosine Phosphosulfate, Reductase.

Her Anaerobic oxidation of methane research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Microorganism, Flux, Carbon cycle and Organic molecules. Her Bacteria research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Nuclear gene and Organelle. Methane is a subfield of Ecology that Victoria J. Orphan studies.
