Joachim Katchinoff serves as a Project Manager at the Carbon Containment Lab. 

Joachim (Jo) has seven years of experience working as a geochemist investigating fundamental questions about the carbon cycle, weathering dynamics, biogeochemical cycles and the interplay between all of these processes in determining climate regulation in Earth’s past, present, and future (Google Scholar profile). His previous work involved using geochemical and experimental tools, including novel metal isotope systems, and numerical modeling to investigate changes in atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations and the pathways for its removal. He also has experience building and leveraging numerical models for geochemical and geospatial analyses. His most recent projects focus on negative emissions technologies, specifically carbon removal via enhanced mineral weathering.

Joachim holds a Ph.D. from Yale University in Earth and Planetary Sciences (2022) and a Bachelor of Science in Geology from The College of William & Mary.
