  Researchers and teacher-researchers joining the IPGP in 2021

Razvan Caracas

Following a dual curriculum in geology and materials science, Razvan Caracas obtained his PhD in materials physics in 2003 at the Université Catholique de Louvain (Belgium). After a first post-doctoral scholarship at the University of Minnesota (USA) in 2003-2004, he was awarded a fellowship of the Carnegie Institution of Washington in 2004-2006 in Washington DC (USA), then a fellowship of the Humboldt Foundation at the Bayerisches Geoinstitut (University of Bayreuth, Germany) in 2006-2008. He started at the Laboratoire de Géologie de Lyon (ENS Lyon) as a CNRS researcher in 2007, then became senior researcher in 2014, before joining the IPGP in October 2021. He uses fundamental physics to model the behaviour of matter in the extreme conditions of the interior of planets. He focuses on the major minerals forming the telluric planets as well as on the planetary ices forming the small satellites or ice giants.

Jordane Corbeau

Jordane Corbeau obtained her PhD in Geosciences, Natural Resources and Environment in 2015 at the Institut des Sciences de la Terre de Paris (ISTeP, Sorbonne Université). The following year, she joined the Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Martinique (OVSM-IPGP) as a post-doctoral fellow in the framework of the Interreg PREST project, where she studied the seismotectonic activity of the Caribbean plate boundaries. In 2020, her work was rewarded by the L'Oréal-UNESCO foundation through the "For Women in Science" programme and the France 2020 Young Talents prize. She was then recruited as an assistant physicist at the IPGP in September 2021. Her research is based on the analysis of data recorded by seismological networks in order to study the seismic cycle of the Lesser Antilles subduction, the interactions between regional seismicity and the seismicity of active volcanic edifices, and the possible occurrence of major earthquakes in the region.

Fidel Costa

Fidel Costa obtained his PhD at the University of Geneva in 1999. He was awarded a Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship at the CNRS (Orléans, France) the following year, and became a post-doctoral researcher at the Ruhr University in Bochum (Germany) in 2002, followed by a Ramon y Cajal fellowship at the CSIC in Barcelona in 2005. In 2010, he joined the Earth Observatory of Singapore (Nanyang Technological University) as a professor at the Asian School of the Environment (ASE) where he stayed for 12 years, including three years as Chair. In 2013, he received the prestigious Wager Medal from IAVCEI. Fidel studies the quantification of magmatic processes in relation to volcano monitoring data in order to better anticipate volcanic eruptions. He uses a combination of petrological, geochemical, experimental and numerical modelling approaches.

Zacharie Duputel

Zacharie Duputel obtained his PhD in Geophysics at the Institut de Physique du Globe de Strasbourg (IPGS) in 2011. He then conducted two years of postdoctoral research at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) before being recruited as a CNRS research fellow at the IPGS in 2013. He finally arrived at the IPGP to join the OVPF in September 2021. His research activities mainly focus on the understanding of the physical mechanisms behind earthquakes occurring in active geological systems (faults, volcanoes). He is particularly interested in producing source models describing the Earth's response to various phenomena (seismic ruptures, magma intrusions, caldera collapses, etc.). This work is based on modelling of seismological and geodetic data, Bayesian inference and various methods to improve seismicity catalogs.

Milena Marjanović

After obtaining a PhD. at Columbia University (New York, USA) in 2013, Milena Marjanović received a Marie Skłodowska-Curie individual fellowship hosted at the IPGP with the secondment within the industry sector (Shell, the Netherlands). Postdoctoral researcher at the IPGP until 2020, she was recruited by the CNRS the following year. Milena is a Marine Geophysicist who has participated in six research cruises in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, with two new sea-going experiments scheduled in the next couple of years. Her research tackles past and present melt distribution along mid-ocean ridges and related phenomena such as crustal accretion, ridge segmentation, hydrothermal circulation, and dike intrusion. In parallel, she develops and applies advanced geophysical techniques to address the architecture and dynamics of magma reservoirs.
