Carlette Blok started on February 5 her PhD on Microfacies and petrographic properties of the Danish Lower Cretaceous. Together with her supervisor Stéphane Bodin, she will be part of a larger group working this project, referred to as LOCRETA.

Torsten Hundebøl Hansen has been a geoscience student at the department since 2013, but in January he started a 4-year PhD project under Ole Rønø Clausen. The project's preliminary title is ”Early Cretaceous tectonic evolution, paleogeography, deposition and redeposition in the Central Graben”, and forms part of a major research program, Tight Reservoir Development, under the Center for Oil and Gas - DTU (DHRTC). My work will mainly consist in interpreting reflection seismic profiles from a particular area in the Danish part of the North Sea. It has already been done, but with access to Mærsk Oils delicious and newest 3-D data, computing power for an incredible amount of money, as well as Ole's knowledgeable guidance and eternal good mood, I plan to do better than everyone before me . Simply!
When I do not do geology, I often run around in the woods or hang out on a climbing wall.
I am looking forward to still being around at Geoscience. If you do not recognise me from the picture, you will know me from the sound of clusters clashing when I walk indoors. See you!

Marcello Giannuoli is a trainee from 1 March 2018 to 30 June 2018. I got my BSc in Geology in Bari, a sunny city in southern Italy, then went to Pisa, where towers lean, for a Master's degree in Geological Sciences and Technologies. From March to June, my home will be Aarhus, where I will be attending a traineeship on methods of palaeoceanographic research under Marit-Solveig Seidenktrantz supervision.
