DTM Weekly Seminar Series
Miki Nakajima

Miki Nakajima, a postdoctoral fellow at DTM, will present a talk titled “Implications of Giant Impacts on the Origin of Martian Moons and Planetary Magnetic Fields” at 11 a.m. on Thursday, June 15, 2017, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's weekly seminar series.

Nakajima received her Ph.D. in planetary science from the California Institute of Technology in 2015. Her research focuses on the formation and evolution of terrestrial planets and my current work includes investigations on the origins of the Earth-Moon systems, exomoons, and Enceladus plumes.

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

"Mineral-scale constraints on the geodynamics of continental extension"

Andrew Smye, assistant professor of geosciences at Penn State, will give a talk titled "Mineral-scale constraints on the geodynamics of continental extension" at 11 a.m. on Thursday, June 8, 2017, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series.

Smye received his Ph.D. in metamorphic petrology, geochronology and structural geology from the University of Cambridge in 2012. His research interests include metamorphic petrogenesis, radioisotope geochronology, the thermal and chemical evolution of continental lithosphere, the role of fluids in crustal evolution, and deep Earth volatile cycles.

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

Donna Shillington

Donna Shillington, associate research professor at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, will present a lecture titled "Diet Affects Behavior: How Ingested Fluids and Sediments Influence Alaska Subduction Zone Earthquakes" at 11 a.m. on Thursday, June 1, 2017, in the Greenewalt lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series.

Shillington received her Ph.D. in geophysics from the University of Georgia in 2004. She uses active-source seismology together with other geophysical and geological data to investigate deformation, magmatism and sedimentary processes at plate boundaries, including continental rifts and rifted margins, subduction zones, and transform boundaries.

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

Sean Andrews, an astrophysicist at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, will give a talk titled "Observing the Evolution of Solids in Protoplanetary Disks" at 11 a.m. on Thursday, May 25, 2017, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series.

Andrews received his Ph.D. in astronomy from the University of Hawaii in 2007. His research interests include structure and evolution of protoplanetary disks; planet formation, planet-disk interactions, and debris disks; aperture synthesis observations, and techniques at mm/radio frequencies; continuum, and molecular line radiative transfer modeling; fundamental physical parameters of young stars.

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