Susannah Dorfman, MSU geoscientist, has been named a Consortium for Materials Properties Research in Earth Sciences Distinguished Lecturer for the 2017-18 academic year.

The 2017-18 series will feature topics that highlight high-pressure geoscience research being conducted within the COMPRES community and its significance for understanding fundamental earth and planetary processes. Dorfman offers two lectures: “The Mineral Physics Test Kitchen: Recipes for Earth’s Mantle and Core” and “Redox in Earth’s Interior: Iron and Carbon.”

“I'm thrilled to have been selected to represent COMPRES as a lecturer and to go on tour to a diverse set of universities,” Dorfman said. “COMPRES has made a big difference to my work, from developing community experimental facilities to offering networking and workshop opportunities. I'm looking forward to sharing my work and meeting students and colleagues.”
