Dr Kate Kiseeva elected to the Council of the European Association of Geochemistry
The European Association of Geochemistry (EAG) is a non-profit organisation aiming to promote geochemistry worldwide.
It is one of the two organisers of Goldschmidt, the biggest geochemical conference a year. EAG publishes a number of international scientific journals, such as Elements and Geochemical Perspectives Letters. It has yearly awards for outstanding and innovative contributions in geochemistry, and through short courses, conferences and grants in supports students and early career researchers. EAG is run by a Council that consists of seven officers-councillors and nine to eleven councillors.
Dr Kate Kiseeva was elected as a councillor for a period of three years. Kate is a Lecturer in Geochemistry at BEES. She obtained her undergraduate degree (2007) in petrology and geochemistry from the Mining Institute, Saint-Petersburg, Russia. In 2012 she received her PhD in experimental petrology from the Australian National University and for the following six years she worked as a postdoctoral researcher and later as a NERC research fellow at the University of Oxford. Her research interests focus on two topics: the behaviour of chalcophile elements in mantle processes and during the Earth’s accretion and differentiation, and high-pressure mantle geochemistry, metasomatism in the cratonic mantle and upper- and lower-mantle inclusions in diamonds.
