CDI members present at conferences

​​CDI group members attended several conferences this spring and presented many talks and posters.  Wenbin Xu, Teng Wang, and Sigurjón Jónsson attended European Space Agency´s Fringe meeting in Frascati in March, Rishabh Dutta and Jon Harrington went to a PhD student conference in Paris (also in March), and Ayrat Abdullin and Joel Ruch presented their work at the EGU meeting in Vienna in April. In addition, Wenbin Xu, Renier Ladron de Guevara, Ayrat Abdullin, Rishabh Dutta, Jon Harrington, Joel Ruch, Hannes Bathke and Ulas Avsar all presented at a workshop on the Red Sea imaging and tectonics held at KAUST in early March.
