We explore what is happening in the Earth’s mantle and core by creating images of the Earth using earthquake waves. We visualise complicated structures scientists do not yet fully understand, to work out their role in the whole Earth system.

Led by Dr Sanne Cottaar, our group consists of PhD students and research associates from different countries and backgrounds. Some of our research team studied geology, while others studied physics or geophysics at university.  We are based in the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of Cambridge.
