Facebook Live Office Hours with Carmen Soriano
Carmen Soriano (XSD), a paleontologist working as a beamline scientist at the Advanced Photon Source (APS), will be answering questions on characterizing ancient fossils with a Facebook Live audience on Monday, Dec. 5, at noon CST.
Join us online to ask your questions. Please follow Argonne social media for details.
Soriano has studied the Field Museum’s T. rex and help unearth the secrets of Illinois’ state fossil, the Tully Monster. She will be on hand to answer questions from Argonne staff and university students curious on how to use X-rays to characterize Earth’s earliest plants and animals.
She will answer such questions as: What can elements discovered within fossils tell us about how they lived? How can X-ray science help us learn about the world’s oldest living creatures? What are prospects for future science, technology, engineering and math professionals?
About Carmen Soriano
Carmen began her paleontological career as a student of biology focusing on the application of complex statistical methods in the fossil record at the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid in Spain. After receiving her Ph.D. for work on insect fossils at the Universitat de Barcelona, Soriano moved to France to research fossilized insects encased amber. There fellow researchers suggested she begin collaborating with the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility. She has been working as a beamline scientist in 2BM beamline at the APS since 2013.
