University of Texas at San Antonio

United States

Project Description

Rheological and experiments on lava (we can discuss with the visitor and they can bring samples); thermal property measurements.

Proposed Hosting Period

Summer would be best, but probably any time May through October - no strong preference as my summer plans are not finalized yet.


High temperature furnaces, rheometers, calorimeter and LFA for measuring thermal diffusivity. Petrographic microscopes, sample prep equipment.

Additional Comments

Happy to host any career stage, including undergraduate. Our group is balanced BS/MS/PhD students. San Antonio is a bilingual city and many people on campus group can speak Spanish fluently (although not me - still working on it).

PI Name & email:
