The School of Cosmic Physics is delighted to announce that Dr Duygu Kiyan has been appointed a Schrödinger Fellow in Geophysics.
Dr Kiyan’s research interests focus on natural-source electromagnetic techniques (i.e. magnetotellurics) in continental environments to understand thermal and compositional structure of Earth’s crust and lithosphere, the use of electromagnetic techniques to image hydrothermal systems in volcanic settings and develop imaging technologies in both extractive (base metal) and renewable energy sectors.
During her Fellowship, she will be part of building a new interdisciplinary team focused on research of exploring the potential for low-enthalpy geothermal energy on the island of Ireland. She will continue her international collaboration with colleagues from France and Portugal to image volcanic systems within the Azores archipelago and to transfer this knowledge to other volcanic systems in Iceland in collaboration with Prof Chris Bean who has an on-going seismic research project in the region.
