Kinohi Institute, 2003-present: Dr. Storrie-Lombardi is the Executive Director of the Kinohi Institute, a private non-profit research facility devoted to investigation of advanced technology for the detection and characterization of life in extreme environments including documentation of the metagenomes of fragile ecosystems. The Institute is particularly interested in the development of mathematical techniques for identifying horizontal gene transfer and optical techniques to detect chemical and structural signatures of life in a mineral or water matrix. The Institute supports the application of these techniques to tasks such as detection of shifts in ocean or ice biomass as a function of global warming, monitoring bioremediation of hydrocarbon contamination in fragile ecosystems such as Antarctica, and searching for life in the polar ice of Mars, the ice moons of the outer planets, and exoplanets.
