Congratulations to the recipient of the 2018 HEMI Seed Grant, Prof. June Wicks!
Professor Wicks is an Assistant Professor in the Earth and Planetary Sciences Department. Research interests include planetary interiors and evolution; building equation of state and phase diagram models of matter at extreme conditions; kinetics of phase transitions at extreme conditions. In addition to funding her project “Bridging Accessible Strain Rates in the Lab to Recreate Meteorite Impacts”, she will be using the grant to expand the capabilities of her research group.
The HEMI seed grants are given each year to fund research in fundamental science associated with materials and structures under extreme conditions. All faculty and researchers at the Johns Hopkins University, as well as Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) Staff, who can serve as Principal and Co-Investigators are eligible to apply.
