Thursday, February 6, 2014 at 6pm, in the John B. Davis Lecture Hall in the Ruth Stricker Dayton Campus Center at Macalester College.
About the speaker: Joshua Feinberg is Professor of Geophysics in the Department of Earth Sciences and Associate Director of the Institute for Rock Magnetism at the University of Minnesota. His research uses a combination of geophysical approaches (e.g., rock magnetism, paleomagnetism, gravity), material characterization techniques (e.g., scanning and transmission electron microscopy, scanning force microscopy, X-ray diffraction), and field geology methods to critically examine a broad range of scientific problems. These tools enable my group to collaborate with specialists from a variety of disciplines, including the geosciences, anthropology, soil science, planetary geology, material sciences, physics, chemistry, and biology. Our research aims to understand the fine details of processes that operate on global, tectonic, outcrop, and nanometer scales.
A no-host dinner open to AIA members with the speaker will follow the lecture at Pad Thai Grand Restaurant, 1681 Grand Avenue, St. Paul
