DTM Weekly Seminar Series
John Debes

John Debes, ESA/AURA astronomer at Space Telescope Science Institute, will give a talk titled "High Contrast Imaging of Planetary Systems from Space" at 11 a.m. on Thursday, September 8, 2016, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series.

Debes received his Ph.D. in astronomy from Pennsylvania State University in 2005. How plants form and what happens to a planetary system when its central star dies are the two questions that drive the bulk of Debe's research in astronomy. He believes answering these questions will reveal important things about how many habitable planets reside in the Milky way and the ultimate fate of the Solar System.

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

Tolulope Olugboji

Tolulope Olugboji, a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Maryland, College Park, will give a talk titled "A Re-appraisal of Crustal Structure in North America using Probabilistic Seismic Imaging" at 11 a.m. on Thursday, July 28, 2016, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar series.

Olugboji received his Ph.D. in geology and geophysics from Yale University in 2014. He is an applied computational geoscientist, who synthesizes theoretical, observational (e.g., seismology and Bayesian computational methods) and experimental evidence (e.g. mineral physics and geochemistry). Olugboji seeks to improve our understanding of the chemical composition and physical behavior of the solid earth.

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

“Breaking Through Exoplanetary Atmospheres”

Mercedes Lopez-Morales

Mercedes López-Morales, an astronomer at the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, will give a talk titled “Breaking Through Exoplanetary Atmospheres” at 11 a.m. on Thursday, July 21, 2016, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series. 

López-Morales received her Ph.D. in astrophysics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. After completing her Ph.D. she went on to become a postdoctoral fellow and a Hubble fellow at DTM. Her research focuses on the detection and characterization of exoplanet atmospheres as principal investigator of the ACCESS project and on the detection of Earth-like planets around other stars as co-investigator of HARPS-North.

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

Jonathan Wynn

Jonathan Wynn, currently on sabbatical from the University of South Florida where he is an associate professor in the School of Geosciences, will give a talk titled “Rapid sea-ice melt, freshwater accumulation, and ocean acidification in the Arctic Ocean” at 11 a.m. on Thursday, July 14, 2016, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series. 

Wynn received his Ph.D. in geology from the the University of Oregon in 2001. During his sabbatical, he’s been applying stable isotope geochemical tools to develop methods of continuous monitoring of freshwater sources in high-latitude oceans, as well as continuing to work on sedimentary records of environmental change in eastern Africa and tracing carbon flows through savanna ecosystems in tropical Australia.

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