Amy Ferrick (PhD candidate) - Amy is currently developing new scaling laws of thermal convection that can take into account the effects of heating mode as well as mantle rheology, with applications to the evolution of terrestrial planets at large.
Steph Larsen Steph Larsen (PhD student) - Steph is currently building a new model for the early Earth landscape that is based on the thermal evolution of Earth and can also be coupled to the long-term evolution of atmosphere and oceans.
Coral Chen (PhD student) - Coral is working on implementing the ultimate version of teleseismic migration using dual bootstrap stacking. She will be addressing long-term convective mixing in Earth’s mantle, both with seismic observations and with geodynamical considrations.
Anastasiia Chupakhina (PhD student) - Anastasiia is working on the role of magmatism on the thermal evolution of Earth as well as the geochemical and geophysical manifestation of magmatism over Earth history.
Darius Modirrousta-Galian (Postdoc) - Darius is an expert on the atmosphere of exoplanets, and he is currently working on hydrogen loss from early Venus and early Earth.
Meng Guo Meng Guo (Postdoc) - For her PhD thesis, Meng worked on the physics and chemistry of crust-mantle differentiation by building a new kind of geochemical box modeling, and she also explored Hadean ocean chemistry. For a postdoc project, she will work on abiotic nitrogen cycle.
Brianna Fernandez (Postgrad) - For her senior essay, Brianna worked on the MCMC inversion of orthopyroxene deformation data. She will continue to work on the reanalysis of the deformation data of crust-forming minerals, which also have implications for global mantle dynamics.
