Campus Arrivals

Bradley Peters, who received his Ph.D. in Earth sciences from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego in 2016, joins the geochemistry group at DTM as a postdoctoral fellow. While at DTM, Peters will work with Erik Hauri, Steve Shirey, and Rick Carlson on measurements of isotopes of Si, Nd, W and Os to better understand Earth events that contributed to the formation of the mantle source to hotspot volcanism on Réunion Island.
Kei Shimizu, who received his Ph.D. in geological sciences from Brown University in 2016, joins DTM's geochemistry group as a Deep Carbon Observatory postdoctoral associate. While at DTM, Shimizu will work with Erik Hauri on D/H analyses of mid-ocean ridge basalts (MORBs) from the East Pacific Rise to better understand the processes that causes the variation in the volatile abundances in Pacific MORBs.
Jonathan Tucker, who received his Ph.D. in Earth and planetary sciences from Harvard University in 2016, joins DTM's geochemistry group as a Deep Carbon Observatory postdoctoral associate. While at DTM, Tucker will work with Erik Hauri on using volatile elements and compounds to understand the planetary-scale evolution of the Earth.
