The Sassy Scientist – Swapping Science for Sun

The Sassy Scientist – Swapping Science for Sun

Every scientist wants to squeeze a holiday or two into their calendar. However, finding the time in between all of your other commitments can be hard. Adeline, much like the rest of us, is desperate to get away from campus for a while and find somewhere to relax for a few days, so here I am to help you solve the age old question: How do you plan a holiday when your schedule is always so full? Dear ...[Read More]

The “Geo-journey” of a PhD Candidate Geophysicist from Sicily to Uppsala.

The “Geo-journey” of a PhD Candidate Geophysicist from Sicily to Uppsala.

Does the sound of pursuing a Ph.D. terrify you? Well, fear not because this week we have Samuel Zappalà from Uppsala University to tell us more about his inspiring story as a Ph.D. student at the Department of Earth Science in Uppsala. And, who knows maybe you will be inspired to pursue a Ph.D. in the future? How many times have you wondered if it is worth taking the risk to pursue a Ph.D. abroad, ...[Read More]

Application of lubrication theory in understanding subduction interface dynamics

Application of lubrication theory in understanding subduction interface dynamics

Plate interface lubrication is essential for stabilization and continuation of subduction process for million of years. The magnitude of plate interface lubrication determines transfer of stress between two converging plates, topography of mountain belts, transportation of volatiles to the mantle, and return flow of high to ultra-high pressure rocks to the earth’s surface.  In this week’s blog, I ...[Read More]
