PhD student Stephen Mosher recently got back from a research cruise in the South Pacific to install ocean-bottom seismograph stations. The goal of the deployment is to study mantle convection patterns in an oceanic setting. You can read about the cruise (and blog post by Steve) here.
Elyse Gaudreau successfully defended her thesis entitled: “Thermochronologic and geophysical investigations of Canadian Cordilleran crust”. Well done!
Elyse is moving on to start a PhD at the University of Victoria starting this September.
One recent paper by Jeremy Gosselin was selected as an “Editor’s Choice” paper in the Canadian Geotechnical Journal. Congratulations Jeremy!
Four members of our group have recently received outstanding scholarships: Élyse Gaudreau (KEGS – GSC Pioneers Scholarship), Jeremy Gosselin (Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship), Stephen Mosher (Ontario Graduate Scholarship) and Andrew Schaeffer (Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship).
Two students from our group successfully defended their MSc thesis:
Steve Mosher’s thesis was entitled: “P-wave study of the San Andreas Fault near Parkfield, California, from ambient noise interferometry of borehole seismic data”.
Azadeh Ashoori’s thesis was entitled: “Lithospheric structure across the northern Canadian Cordillera from teleseismic receiver functions”
Last week MSc student Morgan McLellan successfully defended her thesis entitled: “Structure and deformation of the northern Canadian Cordillera: Insights from Rayleigh wave tomography”.
In addition, Morgan also won the Best Student Paper Award in Geophysics at the GAC-MAC conference held in Whitehorse in June.
