GEMS of Hull: Geology, Environment, Marine Science and Us Series 2: Talk by Professor Mike Rogerson and Laura Bastianini
Speaker: Prof Mike Rogerson, Professor in Earth System Science, and Laura Bastianini, PhD candidate, School of Environmental Sciences, Faculty of Science and Engineering.
Prof Mike Rogerson
Mike is a Professor in Earth System Science who contributes to both geography and geology teaching programmes. He is also Convenor of the Hull Geochemistry and Geobiology (HuGG) research group. He is mostly interested in the environmental and climate records contained in the skeletons of marine plankton, in stalagmites and in freshwater limestones.
Mike can often be found doing ocean physics in the morning, solution chemistry at noon and microbial ecology by evening while chasing a single idea! He initially joined Hull as a research fellow, part-funded by Research Councils UK. Previously he spent two years as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Utrecht.
Laura is a PhD candidate and Graduate Teaching Assistant in Geology at the University of Hull in the School of Environmental Sciences. Her PhD project is called “Wherever I Park My Lab (That’s My Home): Improving Field Analysis of waters and mineral precipitates”. Associated with the Resource Recovery From Alkaline Waste project (https://alkalineremediation.wordpress.com/), the project focus on exploring how much field-site characterization can be improved by using laboratory-quality analytical approaches in a purpose-built environment. Duties also include supporting lecturing staff in to deliver high quality teaching in geology and physical geography, specifically laboratory teaching in a broad range of sub-disciplines, assistance with field teaching.
