DTM Weekly Seminar Sries
Jonathan Gagné, Sagan Fellow at DTM, will give a talk titled, "BASS-Ultracool: Finding isolated planetary-mass objects in the neighborhood", at 11 a.m. on Thursday, 3 March 2016, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series.
Gagné received his Ph.D. in astrophysics from the University of Montreal in 2015. His research interests include brown dwarfs, young moving groups, direct-imaging of exoplanets, near-infrared spectroscopy, and the detection of exoplanets by radial velocity measurements.
Coffee, tea, and a continental breakfast will be served before the lecture at 10:30 a.m.

DTM Weekly Seminar Series
Adam Holt, a final year geophysics Ph.D. student at the University of Southern California, will give a talk titled, "Subducting slab dynamics in regions with multiple active subduction zones", at 4 p.m. on Monday, 29 February 2016, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series.
Holt's research utilizes numerical models to study the dynamics of subduction zones. Particular focuses include how the mechanical properties of lithospheric plates affect slab morphologies, plate velocities, and subduction-induced mantle flow, and how subducting slabs interact dynamically with additional slabs that are in close proximity.
Coffee, tea, and light snacks will be served before the lecture at 3:30 p.m.
