Congratulations to Dr Carrie Soderman on being awarded the Geochemistry Group Postdoctoral Medal for her 2022 paper in Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta.

The paper discusses the use of stable isotopes as new tools for investigating temperature and lithological heterogeneity in the mantle. “This paper showcases some of the work that I’m most proud of from my PhD and I’m thrilled that others think it’s interesting too!” said Soderman.

The medal is awarded each year to a postdoctoral researcher employed at an institution in Great Britain and Ireland who has published outstanding research in a peer-reviewed journal within the field of geochemistry.

Carrie will be giving a keynote presentation on the research at the Geochemistry Group’s next Research in Progress meeting in April.
