Our fellows

The first heatflow.fellowships have been awarded in autumn 2022. During the first round, we received eight applications from Brazil, China, India, Mexico, and Turkey. Three of them, have been awarded. The next submission deadline is 1st March, 2023.

Karina Fuentes Bustillos

CICESE (Mexico)
Round 1 (10/2022-01/2023)

I am Karina Fuentes from Mexico. I consider myself an enthusiastic person about science. I studied environmental sciences at UABC and a master's degree in earth sciences at CICESE. I am currently doing my Ph.D. studying the thermal state of the lithosphere associated with rift tectonic environments through the analysis and modeling of marine heat flow and other petrophysical measurements. I also had the opportunity to participate in the direct acquisition of marine heat flow measurements through oceanographic campaigns, two in the Gulf of California and one in Antarctica. These incredible experiences motivate me to continue studying the dynamism of the ocean floor and the geological processes involved in rift systems.

Elif Pazvantoğlu

Izmir (Turkey)
Round 1 (01/2023-04/2023)

I received my Ph.D. in Geophysics in 2017 at Dokuz Eylül University, As a research assistant, I have been involved in several national projects to study the crustal thermal structure of the Anatolian plate, Turkey since 2009. My research interests include the estimation of heat flow, the thermal properties of rocks, and their significance in regional geodynamic processes. I am also interested in numerical modeling of the subsurface temperature field.

Nishu Chopra

Hyderabad (India)
Round 1 (04/2023-07/2023)

Dr. Nishu Chopra is working as a researcher in the Thermal Geophysics Group at CSIR-National Geophysical Research Institute (CSIR-NGRI), Hyderabad, Telangana, India. She completed her master’s in Geophysics from Kurukshetra University (India) and holds a Ph. D. in Geophysics with a specialization in Thermal Geophysics from Andhra University (Visakhapatnam, India). She is experienced in dealing with continental geothermal data. Her research work comprises the acquisition, processing, modelling, and interpretation of heat flow, thermal conductivity, and heat production data to elucidate the thermal structure of the lithosphere. She has expertise in the thermal properties of crustal rocks at elevated temperatures.
