  • Training Events

    These are scheduled events to help delegates test out the tools and platform we will be using for the Q&A and other events at the conference.

  • Workshops

    Our workshop program provides training and teaching in topics across geochemistry and related fields. We are currently liaising with the workshop organisers to ascertain if any workshops can become virtual. Any updates will be added to this page.

Vickie Bennett

Vickie Bennett (GS representative)

The Australian National University

Vickie C. Bennett is the Head of the Isotope Geochemistry Group and Associate Director at the Research School of Earth Sciences, Australian National University. Her activities are focussed on the application of mass spectrometry and radiogenic and stable isotope geochemistry to solving key questions about the early Earth, including: What was the origin and evolution of the Earth's continental crust? How and when did the various mantle chemical reservoirs form and evolve? How have the lithosphere and biosphere co-evolved? Answering these questions entails integrating geologic observations with a range of isotopic investigations preserved in Earth’s oldest (>3,500 million years old) rock record. Her main field focus is on the Archean terranes of southwest Greenland, but she has also worked in Western Australia, southwest U.S. and Antarctica. Dr. Bennett is a Fellow of the Geological Society of America and the Geochemical Society.

Gabriel Filippelli (Member)


Dr. Gabriel Filippelli is a Professor of Earth Sciences and Directs the Center for Urban Health at Indiana University. Filippelli is a biogeochemist with broad training in climate change in marine and terrestrial systems. Filippelli has published broadly, including publications in Science, Nature and Geology as well as in specialty journals and in popular press. He has personally directed over $6M of research funding over his career, and is currently a co-PI on the $55M Indiana University Prepared for Environmental Change Grand Challenge initiative. He and is currently the Editor-in-Chief for the journal GeoHealth, published by the American Geophysical Union. Filippelli is a Fellow of the International Association of Geochemistry, and former National Academy of Sciences Jefferson Fellow, where he served as a Senior Science Advisor for the State Department, with a policy portfolio including Science Cooperation in the Arctic, Antarctic climate change, and Marine Debris and Plastics.

Mariko Hatta (Student Program Leader)

University of Hawaii at Manoa

Mariko Hatta is an oceanographic researcher, and an Affiliate Graduate Faculty in the Department of Oceanography at University of Hawaii at Manoa. Her research primarily focuses on identifying and describing the physical, biological and chemical processes in the global ocean. Her main research area includes the dynamics of bioactive trace metals (e.g., Iron), tracers (e.g., Aluminum, Manganese, Rare Earth Elements) and nutrients (Nitrate/Nitrite, Phosphate, and Silicate) and their role in moderating marine biogeochemical processes.
