New NanoGeoScience Group Members

Several new researchers have joined the NanoGeoScience group.

Dr. Mingjun Yang, Materials Scientist, joined the group in January after two years at University of Sheffield where he has been doing a postdoc at the Department of Engineering Materials. He will be working with molecular modeling of biological control of calcite crystal growth.

Karina Krarup Sand, Geologist and Christian Schack Pedersen, Chemist have started making Phds.

Exchange student Sorin Nedel has joined the group from France and will be working on his master thesis during his six months stay.

Finally Professor Leonid Lakshtanov is back in the group and will be doing experiments concerning influence of silica on homogeneous and heterogeneous precipitation of calcite.
