DTM Weekly Seminar Series
Donna Shillington

Donna Shillington, associate research professor at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, will present a lecture titled "Diet Affects Behavior: How Ingested Fluids and Sediments Influence Alaska Subduction Zone Earthquakes" at 11 a.m. on Thursday, June 1, 2017, in the Greenewalt lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series.

Shillington received her Ph.D. in geophysics from the University of Georgia in 2004. She uses active-source seismology together with other geophysical and geological data to investigate deformation, magmatism and sedimentary processes at plate boundaries, including continental rifts and rifted margins, subduction zones, and transform boundaries.

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

Andrew Smye, assistant professor of geosciences at Penn State, will give a talk titled "Mineral-scale constraints on the geodynamics of continental extension" at 11 a.m. on Thursday, June 8, 2017, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series.

Smye received his Ph.D. in metamorphic petrology, geochronology and structural geology from the University of Cambridge in 2012. His research interests include metamorphic petrogenesis, radioisotope geochronology, the thermal and chemical evolution of continental lithosphere, the role of fluids in crustal evolution, and deep Earth volatile cycles.

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

Patricia Gregg, an assistant professor at the University of Illinois, will present a lecture titled "Thermomechanical insights into triggering the 2005 eruption of Sierra Negra volcano, Galápagos" at 11 a.m. on Thursday, June 22, 2017, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series.

Gregg received her Ph.D. in marine geophysics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute in 2008. She is an Earth scientist intrigued by the geologic processes that shape the Earth and other planets and is particularly interested in the formation and evolution of volcanic systems on the sea floor, on land, and on other planets.

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

Daniel Viete, assistant professor at John Hopkins University, will give a talk titled "A metamorphic record of deep earthquakes during subduction" at 11 a.m. on Thursday, June 29, 2017, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series.

Viete received his Ph.D. in metamorphic petrology, structural geology, and tectonics from The Australian National University in 2008. His research interests include metamorphic time scales and facies series, continental tectonics, and size effects in rock mechanics.

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