Rajkrishna (Raj) Dutta *19 has been awarded an American Geophysical Union (AGU) John C. Jamieson Student Paper Award in the Mineral and Rock Physics section for the year 2020. Raj was recognized for his works as a Ph.D. student in the High-Pressure Mineral Physics Laboratory under the direction of Prof. Thomas Duffy. His research focus is behavior of geological materials under extreme pressure and temperature conditions. Raj is now a Carnegie Fellow at the Carnegie Institution for Science in Washington, D.C.
The John C. Jamieson Student Paper Award is presented to students who show significant achievement in research and writing in the field of high-pressure science. Since 2015, this particular award is named to honor the memory of former geophysical sciences professor John C. Jamieson who taught at the University of Chicago in the field of high-pressure X ray and ultrasonic research.
Please join the Department of Geosciences in congratulating Raj Dutta for this recognition.
