During my PhD I am trying to get some insights into early life on Earth.
Australian National University scientist Mallory Young, of the Research School of Earth Sciences, is investigating the use of these vibrations as a way to probe the Earth’s outer layer.
The experience of doing a PhD at RSES has been fully immersive. I have completed every aspect of my research project in-house using RSES resources. Sample collection, analysis, and data modeling have all been done using state-of-the-art equipment, and the technical support I received while learning the ropes was fantastic.
Claire Thompson's PhD program at the Research School of Earth Sciences involved filling gaps in our knowledge about the impact of the trace element on the photosynthetic microorganisms.
The four years of my PhD were a great time to be around RSES
Australian National University scientist Barbara Frasl is studying matter from the Sun obtained from soil samples from the Moon to get hints on the evolution of the solar system.
Astrobiologist Aditya Chopra is about to analyse the most primitive organisms on Earth to find the lowest common denominator of life in work that could give hints on where to look for living things on other planets.
