Rasmus Andreasen joins ESP team

Welcome Rasmus!

We are very pleased to announce the arrival of Rasmus Andreasen to the Geoscience Department and the ESP team. Rasmus is returning to Aarhus 16 years after graduating with his bachelor's degree in geology. He received his master's degree from the University of Copenhagen and then his doctorate from Dartmouth College in New Hampshire. He worked as a post doctoral scholar and research assistant at the Imperial College London for four years before taking the position of Research Assistant Professor at the University of Houston.

Rasmus's research interests are focused on isotopic, trace element, and petrographic studies of the evolution of the terrestrial planets. Specifically, his interests include constraining geochemical fluxes, heavy stable isotope fractionation in low- and high-temperature environments as proxies for paleo-redox and -climate, and magmatic processes, and petrogenesis, particularly large igneous provinces. He is also keen to develop experimental geochemical and geochronological techniques.

Rasmus now joins our team as as an academic employee. He will run the new ICP-MS (Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry) laboratory and participate in collaborative and individual research.

More information on the new ICP-MS lab coming soon...!
