Rebecca Oppenheimer

Rebecca Oppenheimer, curator at the American Museum of Natural History's Department of Astrophysics, will give a talk titled "First and Second Generation High Contrast Imaging Experiments for Comparative Planetary Science" at 11 a.m. on Thursday, July 13, 2017, in the Greenewalt Auditorium as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series.

Oppenheimer received her Ph.D. in astronomy from the California Institute of Technology in 1999. She is a comparative exoplanetary scientist who studies planets orbiting stars other than the Sun. 

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

Stefan Lachowycz

Stefan Lachowycz, a postdoctoral Fulbright Scholar at DTM, will give a talk titled "Temporal variability of arc volcanism: records and controls" at 11 a.m. on Thursday, July 6, 2017, in the Greenewalt Auditorium as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series.

Lachowycz received his Ph.D. in Earth sciences from the University of Oxford in 2016. At DTM, he is investigating the prevalence and causes of (sub-)annual-scale changes in volcanic activity by statistical analysis of a variety of time-series from monitoring of diverse active volcanoes. 

Coffee, tea, and a continental 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.
