Patrick Marsden


Patrick has always had a passion for the environment and the world around him.   Recently, he has focused his attention on the microbial world, and the amazing geochemical processes that take place as a function of the soil microbiome.

He is a transfer student from the Community College of Denver and will be attending Metro State University of Denver in the Fall. Patrick is an honor student and will pursue a dual major: B.S. in Microbiology and Biochemistry; with the intention to continue at the graduate level in a related field.

Patrick has two beautiful daughters that he enjoys spending time exploring and sharing the outdoors with. Patrick is also interested in developing effective and accurate science education focused on every age group, and education level. Look for Patrick in the halls of CU in the near future!
