Matthew Weller will receive the 2015 Study of the Earth’s Deep Interior Focus Group Graduate Research Award at the 2015 American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting, to be held 14–18 December in San Francisco, Calif.
Matthew Weller received a dual B.Sc. in geology and astrophysics from the University of Toledo in 2007 and a M.Sc. in remote sensing from the University of Nevada, Reno, in 2010. He is currently finishing a Ph.D. in planetary science and geodynamics under the principle supervision of Adrian Lenardic at Rice University in Houston, Texas. His research focuses on the evolution and dynamics of planetary bodies, deformation through the crust and mantle, and the coupling of global-scale endogenic and exogenic cycles.
