The 2017 Pete Burnard award is attributed to Julien Amalberti

After a PhD (defended in 2015) in Nancy (CRPG) under the supervision of Pete Burnard and Didier Laporte, Julien Amalberti has left France for a post-doctoral position at the noble gas laboratory of the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor – USA). His research focuses on source characterization of the ground water noble gases concentrations. Other main research interests involve the experimental study of magma degassing using noble gases as tracers to understand the mechanisms of the volatile fractionation during volcanic eruption and the development of a numerical model to understand the noble gas behavior during kinetics fractionation.
