Growing up in Germany, she spent much of her free time trying to find the answers. Her curious nature has remained ever since.
Sitting in her Tempe, Arizona What lies beneath language, Neuer says that even though it may seem odd to have a marine biologist living in the desert there are up- and downsides.
She aims to change that. She suggested that Mars may actually be easier to study in some respects because researchers can use telescopes, satellites and surface rovers like Spirit and Opportunity to collect many kinds of information. In the deep ocean there are extreme pressures making it hard to build equipment that will work in the difficult environment.
In these places scientists use particle traps, current meters, thermometers, cameras and pressure meters to learn about this mostly dark and cold world. Most instruments measure the conditions within parts of the ocean, but with little information about the biology in deep-sea environments.
The desire to discover the unknown is nothing new to Neuer. As a child, she would spend time in the forest, collecting samples to study under a microscope bought with money she saved while working in a florist shop when she was just I am glad that I had this great freedom.
From that interest grew the love of oceanography that drives her career today. Read about these amazing creatures in Invisible Watery World or take a close-up look in our Zoom Gallery. How can a marine biologist work in the desert southwest?
Using satellites orbiting the Earth she is able to gather data about plankton that she can use in her laboratory at ASU. Part of her work with particle traps involves studying the effects of deep sea nutrients and currents in the Atlantic Ocean on the growth of plankton, She is also involved with research projects that focus on environmental issues, including how toxic algae are affecting water quality in the Phoenix area.
Beyond her research work, Arizona State University also opened the door for her to work on another passion, advocating the equality for women in science.
They work for equal pay, equal rights, and against discrimination of women in science, technology, engineering and math fields. She uses what she learns from teaching to help with her AWIS duties and she brings what AWIS teaches her into the classroom to try help younger students understand the issues as well.
She gets to study a subject that she loves and even gets to help other scientists, new and seasoned, experience the same. She has taken part in more than 20 cruises, serving as chief scientist on five of those trips.
While she does get to venture out onto—and into—the deep blue, she puts a lot of stock in the work she and her colleagues do behind the microscope and in the lab. She says most of the important work and most of her time spent working is in the lab.What lies beneath: Nanovariation and Learning Theory in the acquisition of human language.

Robert Zemeckis does Hitchcock? Well yes, the influence is obvious, unashamedly so. But the trouble with that, is having the maestro as a benchmark renders all other modern day attempts as folly.

A good old-fashioned scary movie, avoiding irony and self-referentialism at every turn, this film relies on a nice premise and some well-executed creepy atmosphere for its impact.
