Postdoc Spotlight: Marion Garçon
Growing up surrounded by the French Alps seems like the perfect backdrop to develop a fascination with Earth’s reliefs that have been forming long before human life existed. Marion Garçon, a DTM Postdoctoral Fellow, was lucky enough to do just that.

Campus Arrivals and Departures
Jonathan Gagné joins DTM as a Sagan Fellow from the physics department of the University of Montreal, where he received his Ph.D. in astrophysics in 2015 and worked on the construction of the BANYAN II and cross-match of large data sets to identify candidate members of young moving groups a well as their characterization through optical and near-infrared spectroscopy. 
Marion Garçon departs DTM for a short postdoctoral stay in Clermont-Ferrand in the lab of former DTM postdoc Maud Boyet, before assuming the Swiss National Science Foundation Fellowship at ETH Zurich. 
Erika Nesvold joins DTM as a postdoctoral fellow from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County where she conducted research on numerical modeling of circumstellar debris disks at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. 
Myriam Telus joins DTM as a postdoctoral fellow from the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa, where for her dissertation she analyzed the in situ Fe and Ni isotopic composition of chondrules from primitive chondrites in order to constrain the initial abundance of 60Fe (t1/2 = 2.6 Myr) and develop the 60Fe-60Ni system for chronology.
