Catherine Rychert was a NERC Fellow at the University of Bristol  between 2009 and 2012.  She was awarded a postdoctoral fellowship at Scripps Institution of Oceanography in 2007, undertaking her PhD (2007) and MS (2004) at Brown University.  She studied for her first degree at Boston University (BA 2001).  She seismically images the structure of the crust and upper mantle to constrain the physical and chemical properties of the Earth. Her main focus is a better understanding of the nature of the tectonic plate. She is generally interested in the evolution of ocean lithosphere, the formation of the continents, subduction zones, ridges, rifts, and hotspots.
