Matthias Krug joins the TIMEleSS project

Matthias Krug is a PhD student in the mineralogy group at WWU Münster since April 2018.

After finishing his Bachelor’s in Geosciences he continued with a Master’s in Geomaterials, both in Göttingen. He is interested in the composition of the earth’s interior and how different minerals and their phase transitions determine the behavior of the whole system.

His contribution to the project will be to investigate microstructures and textures induced by phase transition in basaltic crust using high-pressure synchrotron experiments.
