Welcome to the Institute of Geological Sciences

  • Climate research in the Romanian Carpathians
    (Sciex Programm)
    Andrei Zamosteanu, PhD student from Romania, participates in the Scientific Exchange Programme Sciex. It offers to researchers from the New Member States for the EU to collaborate with Swiss scientists in Swiss research institutions. In the portrait Andrei Zamosteanu presents his research about the climate change in the Romanian Carpathians.

  • We welcome our new professors at our Institute:

    Prof. Sergey ChurakovProf. Sergey Churakov leads the research group pf Mineralogy and is the head of the Laboratory for Waste Management (LES) at the Paul Scherrer Institute. He models reactions between minerals and fluid on the atomistic scale to understate their rates and mechanisms.

    Prof. Jörg HermannProf. Jörg Hermann leads the research group of Petrology. His research interests focus on metamorphic and tectonic processes in the lithosphere. He integrates field studies with novel petrological and geochemical investigations and experimental studies in the laboratory.

    Daniela RubattoProf. Daniela Rubatto studies the rate of geologicial processes through the combination of geochronology and mineralogical-petrological methods.

    We wish a good start!
