Katherine Crispin Joins Geophysical Laboratory as a Carnegie Fellow

Carnegie Fellow, Katherine Crispin from Case Western Reserve University arrived at the Geophysical Laboratory on September 22, 2011.  She specializes in studies of diffusion in lower mantle minerals.  Prior to joining Carnegie, Katherine examined the effects of crystal field stabilization energy on diffusion rates of transition metals in periclase. 

At the Geophysical Laboratory, she will collaborate to further high-pressure and high-temperature experiments on diffusion in mantle and core minerals.  She holds a Ph.D. in geological sciences from Case Western Reserve University, and a B.Sc. in chemistry from Cedar Crest College.
