Where: Chemistry : 1402
Event Type(s): Lecture

Talk to be given by:
Sarah Stewart-Mukhopadhyay
Professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences
Harvard University

Sarah's core research interest is the formation and evolution of planetary bodies. Collisions are a pervasive physical process that links the history of all planetary bodies, from the giant planets to grains of dust. She uses a physical understanding of collisional processes to investigate problems in planetary sciences. Her primary techniques are shock wave experiments and numerical simulations of collisions.
