Description

The geoscience department weekly seminar presents:

Speaker: Dr. Eugenia Hyung

Topic: Understanding Chemical Heterogeneity in the Earth's Mantle and its Evolution through Time

Dr. Hyung is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard University. She is an isotope geochemist whose research focuses on the extent of mixing and geochemical heterogeneity in the mantle. She has been extensively involved in developing methods to measure 142Nd/144Nd isotopes at ultra-high precision, which she uses as a tracer for mantle mixing to understand the evolution of heterogeneity in the mantle throughout time, and also to elucidate the origins of plate tectonics. Her background in mineral physics has enabled her to diversify her approaches in finding creative solutions to difficult geoscience problems. In her spare time, she likes to engage in different artistic activities, such as painting and wire-wrapping jewelry, and likes to meditate and play cello.
