"Fluid-driven seismicity in the crust revealed by waveform matching methods"

Peng

October 19, 2016
DTM Weekly Seminar Series
Zhigang Peng

Zhigang Peng, a professor of geophysics at Georgia Institute of Technology, will give a talk titled "Fluid-driven seismicity in the crust revealed by waveform matching methods" at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, October 19, 2016, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series. 

Peng received his Ph.D. in geological sciences from the University of California, Los Angeles, in 2004. His research interests include high resolution imaging of fault zone structures, temporal changes of the Earth's properties, spatio-temporal seismicity patterns, earthquake triggering, non-volcanic tremor and slow earthquakes, and seismological studies of the Earth's interior,

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

"Noble Gases in Meteorites as Tracers of Solar System Processes"

DTM Weekly Seminar Series
My Riebe

My Riebe, a postdoctoral associate at DTM, will give a talk titled "Noble Gases in Meteorites as Tracers of Solar System Processes" at 11 a.m. on Thursday, October 13, 2016, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series.

Riebe received her Ph.D.  in cosmochemistry from the Institute of Geochemistry and Petrology in Zürich in 2016. She is interested in the origin and processing of volatile elements in the Solar System. During her Ph.D. research, Riebe studied the effects of various processes on noble gases in meteorites. Most of the so called primordial noble gases, which were incorporated into their carriers either prior to or during the formation of the Solar System, are present in carbonaceous matter in meteorites. A better understanding of the origin of carbonaceous matter will also help our understanding of the origin of primordial noble gases.

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

"Transferring Volatiles from Asthenosphere to Atmosphere"

Yves Moussallam

DTM Weekly Seminar Series
Yves Moussallam

Yves Moussallam, a postdoctoral scholar at the University of California, San Diego, will give a talk titled "Transferring Volatiles from Asthenosphere to Atmosphere" at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, October 5, 2016, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's weekly seminar series.

Moussallam received his Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge in 2013. His research interest include geochemistry, petrology, and volcanology.

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

"Applying and Interviewing for Permanent Academic Positions"

NASA

September 28, 2016
Postdoctoral Development Workshop Series
Aki Roberge, Jan Rigby

Aki Roberge and Jane Rigby, both research astrophysicists at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, will host a workshop titled "Applying and Interviewing for Permanent Academic Positions" at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, September 28, 2016 in the Abelson Collaboration Center as part of DTM's Postdoctoral Development Workshop Series.

Roberge received her Ph.D. in astrophysics from Johns Hopkins University in 2002. She's interested in the study of planet formation through multi-band observations of young circumstellar disks, as well as planning and development for future exoplanet observations. Roberge was also a postdoctoral fellow at DTM from 2002-2005.

Rigby received her Ph.D. in astronomy from The University of Arizona in 2006. She also serves as the deputy project scientist for operations for the James Webb Space Telescope. Her research interests include galaxy evolution, star–forming galaxies, and active galactic nuclei; the star–formation, metal–enrichment, and black hole growth histories of the universe; gravitational lenses as natural telescopes; diagnostic astrophysical spectroscopy; and science systems engineering for upcoming space telescopes.

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

This workshop is open to Carnegie personnel only.
