“Effects of Subduction Obliquity on Mantle Wedge Flow Patterns and Subduction Zone Processes”

DTM Weekly Seminar Series
Ikuko Wada

Ikuko Wada, an assistant professor in geodynamics at the University of Minnesota, will give a talk titled “Effects of Subduction Obliquity on Mantle Wedge Flow Patterns and Subduction Zone Processes” at 11 a.m. on Thursday, March 30, 2017, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series. 

Wada received her Ph.D. in Earth and ocean sciences from the University of Victoria in 2009. Her research interests are focused primarily on subduction zone geodynamics. One of her goals is to provide a better understanding of physical conditions that control geophysical and geochemical processes in subduction zones, such as megathrust earthquakes, intraslab earthquakes, mantle wedge flow, transport of volatiles, generation of melts, and arc volcanism. 

Coffee, tea, and a continental breakfast will be served before the lecture at 10:30 a.m.

"Congratulations! You won a grant proposal...now what?"

Postdoc Workshop
Jessica Moore

Jessica Moore, associate director of financial planning and budgeting at the Carnegie Institution for Science, will lead a postdoc workshop* titled "Congratulations! You won a grant proposal...now what?" at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, April 12, 2017, in the Abelson Collaboration Center as part of DTM's Postdoctoral Development Workshop Series.

Moore's first postdoc workshop,  titled "Creating a Successful Cost Proposal," covered different types of cost proposals, the proposal submission process, and how to prepare a budget. She also examined the new Uniform Guidance from the U.S. government, critical areas to review when looking at any request for a proposal, and best practices for developing an accurate budget. In the second installment of this workshop series, Moore will explain the lofty responsibility of managing a grant budget once it is received.

Coffee, tea, and light refreshments will be served before the workshop at 10:30 a.m.

*This workshop is open to Carnegie personnel only.

"Anatomy of a Megathrust Plate Boundary Through the Earthquake Cycle"

Susan Schwartz

DTM Weekly Seminar Series
Susan Schwartz

Susan Schwartz, a professor at the University of California, Santa Cruz, will present a lecture titled "Anatomy of a Megathrust Plate Boundary Through the Earthquake Cycle" at 11 a.m. on Thursday, April 13, 2017, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series. 

Schwartz received her Ph.D. from the University of Michigan. Her research addresses problems in earthquake seismology, Earth structure, active tectonics, and volcano seismology and geodesy. Her research interests include the mechanical behavior of the seismogenic zone at subduction margins, interrogation of the velocity structure of the crust and upper mantle lithosphere at or near plate boundaries, volcanic deformation and seismicity, and seismotectonics of the San Andreas fault system and Costa Rica.

Coffee, tea, and a light breakfast will be served before the lecture at 10:30 a.m.

Jill VanTongeren

Jill VanTongeren, an assistant professor at Rutgers University, will present a lecture at 11 a.m. on Thursday, April 20, 2017, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series.

VanTongeren received her Ph.D. from Columbia University. Her research interests include the geochemical and thermal evolution of large magma chambers, processes in the lower oceanic crust, and early Earth tectonics.

Coffee, tea, and a light breakfast will be served before the lecture at 10:30 a.m.
