"Exoplanet Genetics: What Host Star Chemical Abundances Reveal about Exoplanets"

Johanna Teske

March 31, 2016
DTM Weekly Seminar Series
Johanna Teske

Johanna Teske, an Origins fellow at DTM, will give a talk titled, "Exoplanet Genetics: What Host Star Chemical Abundances Reveal about Exoplanets", at 11 a.m. on Thursday, 31 March 2016, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall. 

Teske received her Ph.D. in astronomy from the University of Arizona in 2014. Her research focuses on measuring the abundances of different elements in exoplanet host stars in order to learn about the starting chemical conditions for planet formation. She uses high resolution optical spectrometers mounted on big telescopes in Hawaii and Chile to collect her data; observing and tinkering with these instruments is her favorite part of her job. 

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

Jesse Reimink

Jesse Reimink, a postdoctoral associate at DTM, will give a talk titled, "Early terrestrial crust formation: petrogenesis of the oldest rocks within the Acasta Gneiss Complex", at 11 a.m. on Thursday, 17 March 2016, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series.

Reimink received his Ph.D. from the University of Alberta in 2015. His research interests include the evolution of crust formation through time; Hadean geodynamics; mode and effect of cratonization; influence of crustal composition on other Earth systems; modeling of complex datasets; high precision geochronology of complex samples. 

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

“Electromagnetic imaging of water-rich faults and melt-rich mantle across the Middle America Trench”

Samer Naif

Samer Naif, a postdoctoral research scientist at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, will give a talk titled, “Electromagnetic imaging of water-rich faults and melt-rich mantle across the Middle America Trench”, at 11 a.m. on 10 March 2016, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series.

Naif received his Ph.D. in Earth sciences from the University of California, San Diego, in 2015. He uses magnetotelluric and controlled-source electromagnetic data to model the electrical resistivity structure of the Earth in order to investigate tectonic processes.

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

"BASS-Ultracool: Finding isolated planetary-mass objects in the neighborhood"

Jonathan Gagne

March 3, 2016
DTM Weekly Seminar Sries
Jonathan Gagné

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.
