Lauren Waszek

About

Dr Waszek earned her BA and MSci in Physics and PhD in Geophysics from the University of Cambridge, UK. She then held a three year Junior Research Fellowship at Cambridge, followed by a one year Research Associate position at the University of Maryland. Whilst at Cambridge, she taught several undergraduate courses and supervised research projects.

Dr Waszek is a global seismologist, researching the seismic properties of Earth’s deep interior from the inner core to the upper mantle. She is particularly interested in the relationship between seismic structures and their geodynamical origin. Her early research provided the first ever seismic constraints on the rate of inner core super-rotation. She is currently investigating mid-mantle discontinuities to explore their influence on mantle convection.
