Congratulations to Professor Tamsin Mather, who has been named one of this year’s Mineralogical Society Distinguished Lecturers.
The Distinguished Lecturer programme aims to promote interest and discussions across the broad field of Mineral Sciences, including all aspects of petrology and geochemistry at the Earth’s surface and at depth. The Mineralogical Society appoints two lecturers each year, good communicators and experts in their fields, to give a number of lectures at universities and related institutions. The lectures will be aimed to appeal to undergraduates and research students as well as more advanced scientists.
Details of the dates and locations of Tamsin’s talks are yet to be confirmed, but abstracts of the talks can be viewed on the Mineralogical Society website.
A previous distinguished lecturer with an Oxford connection was Professor David J. Vaughan, (DPhil, Univ 1968), now Professor of Mineralogy and Director of the Williamson Research Centre for Molecular Environmental Science at the University of Manchester.
