Dr Julia Semprich
Julia is a Research Fellow.
Julia joined The Open University in 2020 as a Research Fellow in AstrobiologyOU. Prior to that she was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston, USA, modelling fluid-rock interactions on Mars and Venus and at the University of Campinas, Brazil, where she studied melting processes in the Archean crust. Julia completed her PhD in Geosciences at the University of Oslo, Norway modelling density variations in the lower crust and implication for geodynamic processes.
Julia’s research interests are in metamorphic and igneous petrology, specifically, understanding processes operating in the crust of the Earth and other planetary bodies in our Solar System. This includes surface gas-rock interactions on Venus, understanding rock properties of deep crustal rocks and melting processes, and modelling the interaction of fluids with rock compositions in environments such as the martian subsurface or icy moons.
As a PhD student, Julia taught Advanced Petrology Labs covering a range of igneous and metamorphic topics. She has also given various short courses on phase equilibria modelling and its applications to Earth and Planetary Sciences.
