Jim Cleaves is studying the origin of life on Earth and elsewhere, specifically with the question of how chemistry becomes biology. He is interested in how simple organic compounds are produced from cosmically abundant inorganic compounds under geochemically plausible conditions, and how these compounds self-organize to form more complex and potentially self-replicating systems.
