Keynote talk, Gordon Research Conference „Interior of the Earth“

Hauke was invited to present the group’s work at the Gordon Research Conference „Interior of the Earth“ at Mount Holoyke (June 2nd-7th).The theme of the Conference was „Processes and Outcomes of Material Recycling Between Earth’s Surface and Interior“. Hauke was invited to contribute the mineral physics perspective to deep recycling in a talk entitled „Physical Properties of Mantle Materials and Their Importance to Understand Recycling“.

 

Presentation at workshop „New opportunities for high P-T research at Diamond“

Hauke presented some of the group’s most recent work on time-resolved x-ray diffraction measurements in the dynamically driven diamond-anvil cell at the user workshop at Diamond Light Source. The talk was entitled „Bulk modulus softening in (Mg,Fe)O across the iron spin change measured in a dynamic DAC“ and largely focused on work done by PhD student Alba San José Mendèz.

Discussion evening: „High-Profile Journals: Impact on Scientists and Science“

Together with the working group  „Wissenschaftssteuerung durch High-Profile Journale“ at the Bavarian Academy of Sciences, we organized a disussion evening on „High-Profile Journals: Impact on Scientists and Science“ in Munich.The introductory talks by Prof. Dr. Andrea Abele-Brehm (Senior Fellow of Psychology at the University Erlangen-Nürnberg) and Prof. Davide Cantoni (Professor of Economics at LMU München) triggered a controversial discussion about the importance of high-profile journals and their impact on career paths as well as the advancement of science. The event took place in the evening of January 10th and was attended by students and researchers covering a wide range of research fields and career stages, illustrating the perceived huge influence of high-profile journals on research. More details (in German) can be found here.

Hauke presented his Habilitation Talk at BGI Bayreuth

Hauke presented a talk – in German – on „Neues aus dem unteren Erdmantel: Wie die Forschung under Verständnis der tiefen Erde revolutioniert“ and thereby succesfully finished his Habilitation procedure at the University of Bayreuth. Congratulations (to myself).

Hauke is invited to present the group’s work at UCL

Hauke was visiting University College London Today to present the work of the GeoMaX group in the UCL Earth Science Departmental Seminar Series. The presentation entitled „Experimental Exploration of Earth’s Mantle“ was attended and well-received by a diverse audience including many undergraduate students.

Invited Talk at Gordon Conference

Hauke was invited to present the groups work in a talk entitled „The Deep Earth’s Interior: From Static to Dynamic High-Pressure Experiments“ at the Gordon Conference on High Pressure that was held at Holderness School this week.

Work highlighted by DESY

Our recently published work on „Elastic softening of (Mg0.8Fe0.2)O ferropericlase across the iron spin crossover measured at seismic frequencies“ has been presented in „News & Highlights“ by DESY. The press release can be found here.
