    Cécile Prigent joins the Mantle Processes Group

    Cécile Prigent has joined the Mantle Processes Group as a postdoctoral scientist. Cécile received her PhD from the Université Grenoble-Alpes, France, working with Stéphane Guillot and Philippe Agard on the interaction of subduction fluids with peridotites in the Oman Ophiolite. Her research focus is on the feedbacks between ductile deformation and fluid circulation.
