About the Author
James Badro is a Professor and Research Director at the Institute of Earth Physics in France. He is a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union and a Life Fellow of the Mineralogical Society of America. His research interests involve deep earth geophysics and geochemistry through high pressure experiments, with special focus on experimental petrology, experimental geochemistry, mineral physics mantle and core composition, structure and dynamics, earth formation and evolution, earth accretion and differentiation. He is a well-known author with numerous research publications including in Science, Nature Materials and Geophysical Monograph Series.
Michael J. Walter is the Professor and Head of School of Earth Sciences at the University of Bristol, UK. His research interests involve high pressure-temperature experimental petrology, geochemistry, and mineral physics with special focus on topics including the differentiation of the mantle and core, Earth accretion, subsolidus lower-mantle phase relations and crystal chemistry, origin and evolution of deep-seated carbonatite magmas and mineral inclusions in diamond. He is a well-known author with numerous publications including in Science and Journal of Geophysical Research.
