This week: Meet Hannah Mark 

The next candidate for our vacancy in Active Margins is Hannah Mark. Hannah is a marine geophysicist and postdoctoral investigator at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution where she is applying her skills as a geodynamic modeler (she is also an observationalist). She will give her research seminar, entitled

"From the surface to the mantle, and back again: two subduction stories"

Wednesday, May 11, at 3:30 in OSB 425, with reception afterwards at 4:30. 

All are welcome. If you are unable to attend in person, you can Zoom into the seminar. A recording will also be made available later.

Hannah’s teaching demo (unrecorded) to our grad students only will take place on Thursday, May 12, at noon in MSB 123. Her chalk talk (possibly recorded for later viewing) will be that same afternoon at 3-4 pm, also in MSB 123.

If you wish to meet with Hannah one-on-one or in a small group, please contact Jody Deming as there are still some open slots on her schedule.
