Prof. Ann Marie Hirt
Ann Marie Hirt-Tasillo was awarded the title of Professor (Titularprofessor) at ETH Zurich in 2009. Ann M. Hirt-Tasillo teaches in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences and since 2003 heads the Laboratory for Natural Magnetism (LNM). As a member of the Group Earth and Planetary Magnetism in the Institute of Geophysics she leads several multi-disciplinary research projects. In 2008 she was named Professor at the ETH Zurich. Her research interests are focused on the application of magnetic properties to various problems arising in the earth and environmental sciences, as well as the life sciences. Throughout her academic career, she studied the magnetic anisotropy, ranging from fundamental properties of minerals to its relationship to rock deformation. A further area of research covers the influence of environmmetal conditions on the magnetic properties of soils and lacustrine sediments. Together with researchers from the University Hospital Zürich, she also investigates the magnetic mineralogy of brain and tumor tissue to gain a better understanding of their role in neurological diseases. Ann Hirt is Associate Editor for the Swiss Journal of Earth Sciences and chairs the Working Group Rock Magnetism of the International Association of Aeronomy and Geomagnetism (IAGA).
Prof. Satria Bijaksana
After completed the Ph.D program in geophysics from Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canada, Satria Bijaksana returned to Indonesia in 1996 and joined Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB). His full professorship (in rock magnetism) was achieved in 2010. His research interests are rock magnetism and its applications in differing fields, such as paleomagnetism, climate studies, enviromental studies, volcanology, agricultural geophysics, as well as geophysics exploration. Apart from his teaching and research activities, Prof. Satria Bijaksana also served various administrative positions, ranging from Associate Head of Physics Department, Associate Dean of Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Secretary of Quality Assurance of ITB, to Head of Global Geophysics Research Group. He is also a member of American Geophysical Union (AGU), Indonesian Association of Geophysisicts (HAGI), and Indonesian of Geologists (IAGI). In addition, Prof. Satria Bijaksana is also a Fellow of the Geological Society of London and a Senior Assessor of the AUN-QA (ASEAN University Network-Quality Assurance).
Dr. Jason Scott Herrin
Dr. Jason Herrin is an igneous petrologist and chemical microanalyst involved in volcano research and the study of meteorites and asteroid impacts on Earth. He specializes in the utilization of in situ solid state analytical techniques such as electron probe microanalysis (EPMA), laser ablation inductively-coupled plasma mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD). He manages the Electron Probe MicroAnalysis facility, which is shared between the Earth Observatory of Singapore and the Facility for Analysis, Characterisation, Testing, and Simulation. As a senior research scientist in Earth Observatory of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University, Dr. Jason Herrin works on some research projects, such as time scale of vulcanic unrest and dynamic of magma acsent, Singapore-WiscAr Partnership (SWAP), experimental determination of trace metal partitioning in ostracod calcite, and search for the impact crater of the Australian tektites.
Prof. Baba Musta
