Amber Turner visiting LBNL

Undergraduate, Department of Geoscience

Advisor: Dr. Oliver Tschauner


Amber is an Undergraduate pursuing a B.S. in Geology and conducts research under the guidance of Dr. Oliver Tschauner.  Her specialty is in the behavior of minerals under high-pressure, high-temperature conditions. Amber’s research has afforded her the opportunity to be an intern at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, where she conducted experiments using a Diamond Anvil Cell, and analyzed her data using single crystal x-ray diffraction methods at the Advanced Light Source located in Lawrence Berkeley National Lab.  Amber also serves in the United States Army Reserve in Special Operations. Amber hopes that her research will lead to a career in nuclear security, more specifically in detonation science, as high pressure science has greatly enhanced her military career. Amber is expected to graduate in Fall 2017.
