Congratulations to Allison Pease, the 2022 recipient of the MSA Kraus Research Grant in Crystallography for her project “Structural Variation in Silicate Perovskites”! This award is given to one early-career researcher per year to support costs of research in mineralogical crystallography.
Congratulations to Dr. Mingda Lv (Ph.D. 2021) who is BOTH the John Jamieson Student Paper awardee in Mineral and Rock Physics and the Graduate Student Research awardee in Study of Earth’s Deep Interior!!! We are so so proud!
Dr. Byeongkwan Ko is a new postdoc in the Mineral Kitchen! BK has a Ph.D. from the School of Earth and Space Exploration at ASU. His specialty is experimental mineral chemistry at conditions of Earth’s deep mantle, including problems ranging from uranium storage in silicates to deep water and carbon cycles. Welcome to BK!
For our June beamtime at GSECARS and HPCAT, Allison Pease received permission to return to APS as an on-site user for the first time since the pandemic! Dr. Mingda Lv joined us in person as well in his new position as a postdoctoral researcher at HPCAT! Except for the beamline staff, the rest of our experiment team is logged in remotely, including Mario Calderón and Megan Rylko from the Zevalkink lab. Is hyflex beamtime here to stay?
