Alice Turner is an earthquake seismologist. Her research focuses on using seismic observations to understand the mechanics of earthquakes, both on the Earth and on other planets. During her PhD at the University of Oxford, Alice studied the mechanics of repeating earthquakes (earthquakes that happen repeatedly in the same location) on the Earth and on the Moon. At UTIG, Alice will continue to work on planetary seismicity. She aims to better understand the stresses that cause seismicity on other planets, which will help to improve our knowledge of their interior and evolution.
