The group is back from AGU. First AGU experience for Yanqing and Salah. Yanqing presented a talk on Monday and a poster on Wednesday, Salah a poster on Wednesday. They both did a great job and are now finalizing writing up the first papers of their PhD. Wim also had great feedback for his poster. […]
The school year is finally over. The summer is important to get some momentum into our projects… here is what we are up to: Yanqing works on two major fronts: bubble dynamics in magma, studying the uptake of trace element during bubble growth for example. The second line of study deals with the effect of […]
This semester, covering Earth System Modeling (introduction to numerical modeling with the finite difference method)
Congratulations to Dr Shafei who successfully defended his PhD last Tuesday. Welcome to the postdoc world !
In a collaboration with Olivier Bachmann (ETH, Switzerland), Joe Dufek (GTech), Jean-Louis Vigneresse (Universite Nancy, France) and Andrea Parmigiani (GTech), we developed a model to explain the accumulation and transport of trace metals out of magma chambers by exsolved volatiles. The enrichment and transport of these metals out of shallow magma chambers is a fundamental […]
This Fall,a new class on lattice Boltzmann modeling for Geosciences will be offered. It will be held on Mondays from 4.30-6.30.
This summer our group is growing with the arrival of two graduate and three postdoctoral students. I am happy to welcome Salah Faroughi, Yanqing Su, Babak Shafei, Caroline Bouvet de Maisonneuve and Andrea Parmigiani. This will be an exciting and fruitful year.
