R. James

Dr. Rachael James has been invited to be the European Association of Geochemistry (EAG) Distinguished Lecturer for 2014.

The Distinguished Lecture program aims to introduce and motivate scientists and students located in under-represented regions of the world to emerging research areas in geochemistry.  The distinguished lecturer is selected based on a combination of outstanding research contributions to geochemistry and the ability to clearly communicate these contributions to a broad audience.

Dr Rachael James research focuses on the development and application of chemical and isotopic techniques to improve our understanding of earth and planetary processes- both now and in the past. Her lectures will be based on work that she has conducted with many colleagues at the NOC and beyond, and will include an assessment of the linkages between methane release from Arctic shelf sediments and climate change, and the use of non-traditional stable metal isotopes in understanding weathering, ocean chemistry and climate change.

Rachael says " I am delighted to be the 2014 EAG Distinguished Lecturer, and I am looking forward to visiting institutions in Eastern Europe with which I feel I should be better connected".
