Teresa Fornaro is a postdoctoral fellow at the Geophysical Laboratory. Her interests pertain to astrobiology, focusing on detection of molecular biomarkers in space and origin of life investigations. She is currently working on the study of interactions of molecular biomarkers on Mars soil analogs and simulations of Martian conditions. Prior to joining GL, Teresa was at INAF - Astrophysical Observatory of Arcetri. 
 
Geochemistry

The Geophysical Laboratory's weekly seminar series continues with Catherine McCammon of University Bayreuth. She will present, "Seeking carbon in the deep Earth."

Geochemistry, Planetary Science

The Geophysical Laboratory's weekly seminar series continues with Emily Pringle of UCSD. She will present, "Rubidium isotope insight towards understanding planetary accretion in the inner Solar System."

Geochemistry

The Geophysical Laboratory’s Alex Goncharov and Terrestrial Magnetism’s Peter van Keken were awarded a Venture Grant to apply a novel flash-heating method for high- pressure/high-temperature experiments to measure the thermal conductivity of Mars. They will then develop new models to understand why that planet cooled so fast and early.

Geochemistry

The Geophysical Laboratory's weekly seminar series continues with Hikaru Iwamori of JAMSTEC. He will present, "Geochemical heterogeneity of the Earth's mantle and its implications for the dynamics."

Geochemistry

The Geophysical Laboratory's weekly seminar series continues with Razvan Caracas of the French National Centre for Scientific Research, Lyon. He will present, "Supercritical silicate melts in the protolunar disk."

Geochemistry

The Geophysical Laboratory's weekly seminar series continues with GL's own Mike Ackerson. He will present, "Partially molten granites at 500°C? Reimagining crustal magmatism."
