New Postdoctoral Scholar: Ludovic Huguet

We are happy to welcome Ludovic Huguet to the Department as a Postdoctoral Scholar. Dr. Huguet earned his Ph.D. from the University of Lyon, France in 2014. His research has focused on both convection and crystallization of materials under hypergravity. He is working with Steven Hauck and James Van Orman in order to develop models of crystallization in planetary cores that experience iron snow.

New NSF Postdoctoral Scholar: Jeff Pigott

Jeff Pigott joined the Department as a Postdoctoral Scholar in September 2015. Dr. Pigott earned a Ph.D. from Ohio State University in August 2015. He specializes in high pressure and high temperature experiments and molecular models. He is working with Jim Van Orman on a project to determine the influence of pressure on diffusion rates in Earth's inner core. Dr. Pigott received a prestigious NSF postdoctoral fellowship to pursue this work.
