Employees will receive an e-mail from Rambøll management with a personal link. Please note that the email from Rambøll with a link to the questionnaire survey is not an attempt at phishing.

If you did not receive the e-mail with the personal link, please send an e-mail to apv@au.dk, and they will help you ASAP.

The survey must be answered via the personal link no later that March 13th 2019.

Booking of bike and brobizz

It is now possible to book our bike and brobizz (easy payment when crossing the bridge between Funen and Zealand).

All Geoscience employees can see the calendars and check availability.

The calendars are called BroBizz Aarhus GEO and Cykel Aarhus GEO.

If you borrow the bike outside office hours, it is still possible to write on the white board in office 1672-130. Please state name of user and expected return.

New employees and guests

Anders Kristian Kühl started as PhD Student at HGG.

Jennifer Galloway is an Associate Professor at the Aarhus Institute of Advanced Studies and is on leave from the Geological Survey of Canada. She will be at Aarhus University for 1 year conducting a research project on the Extinct Polar Biome that existed during the Mesozoic in high northern latitudes despite the long polar night and summers with continuous sunlight. She is a geologist, palynologist, and paleoecologist who studies the role of climate variability on terrestrial ecosystem functioning on various time scales.

More information about Jennifer can be found here.

Alicia Fantasia is a sedimentologist specialised in palaeoenvironmental and palaeoclimatic reconstructions during Mesozoic global events. Her research integrates stratigraphy, sedimentology, mineralogy and geochemistry.
During her MSc and PhD projects at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland, she acquired a solid expertise of environmental changes occurring around the Cretaceous-Paleogene (KPg) boundary, and during the Toarcian Oceanic Anoxic Event (183 Ma, Early Jurassic).

She has recently joined Stéphane Bodin’s group as a Postdoctoral Fellow. During 18 months she will be working on Aalenian (Middle Jurassic) successions from France and Chile to better constrain the palaeoenvironmental changes occurring during this poorly known time interval.
