Colli and Jones Receive 2017 Study of the Earth’s Deep Interior Focus Group Award for Graduate Research

Lorenzo Colli and Tim Jones will receive the 2017 Study of the Earth’s Deep Interior Focus Group Award for Graduate Research at the 2017 American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting, to be held 11–15 December in New Orleans, La. This award is given annually “in recognition of advances that contribute to the understanding of the deep interior of the Earth or other planetary bodies using a broad range of observational, experimental, and/or theoretical approaches.”

Lorenzo Colli

Lorenzo Colli received his B.S. and M.S. in physics from the University of Milan. He then moved on to a Ph.D. in geophysics under the supervision of Hans-Peter Bunge and Andreas Fichtner at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, which he completed in January 2017. Since September 2017, he has been a research assistant professor at the University of Houston. His research focuses on linking geodynamically relevant observations and theoretical expectations through the retrodiction of past mantle states.

Tim Jones received his B.S. in geophysics and geology from Macquarie University in 2011 and from then worked as a geophysicist at Geoscience Australia until the end of 2013. He is currently working toward a Ph.D. in geodynamics under the supervision of D. Rhodri Davies at the Australian National University in Canberra. His research interests include the composition of the ocean floor, the dynamics of plates and plumes, and the evolution of deep mantle structure.
